Google Earth has just updated to include exploring what makes up 70% of the earth, the ocean. The update will work for most phones on Android 2.1 or later.
Included in the 1.1 update:
- A layer called “Explore the Oceans,” which features hundreds of photos and videos submitted by users
- The gold highlighted icons represent those submitted by the Mission Blue Hope Spot Initiative
There are also features only for those with 2.2 (Froyo):
- Supports Flash in balloons, which means that you can watch videos directly in the balloons
- Also, the application was made easier to navigate, with Google allowing users to roam around with two fingers rather than the on-screen controls
