google ocean

Yes, Google continues to take over the world. You may have heard that the newest release of Google Earth includes the ocean … but that’s not all. Sure you can “dive beneath water surface, explore 3D under water terrain and browse ocean-related content contributed by leaders in ocean science and advocacy.” But you can also view archival satellite images and create narrated tours. And, uh, don’t forget outer space: Mars 3D (sounds like a sci-fi movie).

Google Earth is a free download and integrates far more than the updates above. If you are interested in what’s available or how to use it, visit the tutorial page. For ideas of how you might be able to use Google Earth as a resource (or build your own Google Earth resource), visit the Google Earth Outreach Showcase page.
