CNET just discovered the newest thing about Google Earth. Google has joined with Discovery Communications to bring historical information to 10 U.S. landmarks. It won't be too much longer until their database grows, and others start to add their own content. Where was this when I was in high school?
"Google Earth, the free software that allows users to customize three-dimensional satellite
maps, will now offer Discovery Communications content regarding history, science and culture on
popular and historic destinations. When Google Earth users now click on an historic or
culturally significant map point, a Discovery window will pop up, offering links to both videos
and encyclopedic content."
