Google Earth that allows us to travel the whole world through a virtual globe and also view maps, 3D buildings, satellite imagery and more has got enriched with a new feature added recently by Google Earth.
Google Earth has added a new feature to its “Mountains” layer in Google earth. Users can check the left layers panel in Google Earth to view the “Mountains” layers. There is a green icon by clicking on which users can find the information about a particular mountain. The information will be appeared in bubble form and will be included elevation, a link to a KML tour and a link to a slide deck of panoramios pictures. Floating over an image will display arrows with additional photos.
In the “elevation profile” section users will be able to see cross sections of a mountain in four directions.
The Lat Long Blog offers more information. “We’re also excited to show off the tours created for each and every mountain. Click on the ‘Fly on a tour’ link to download a KML tour. Hit the ‘Play’ icon once the tour has downloaded and you’ll be taken to a vantage point near the peak and flown in a circle to take in the views.”
Thus now people will be able to view and enjoy the beauty and elegance of mountains more closely with the new added mountain feature of Google Earth.
