#TechTipTuesday - The NEW Google Earth

Google Earth is back and in 3D.

That's right, one of my Social Studies teacher's favorite tools is back and it's got a some awesome new features. 

Quick run down of new features:

1.Orbit in 3D: Start with a view of the world from outer space then zoom in to any location in the world and view the space in a new 3D model.
2. Knowledge Cards: While visiting new locations around the globe check out the built in 'knowledge cards" about the area. Information about the area will pop as you explore.
3. Voyager: Not sure where to start? Check out Voyager, curated spaces and adventures from the many places around our world. Check out built in cards, pictures and more
4. Feeling Lucky: Not sure what to check out? Click on the Feeling lucky link and let Google take you to a random location in the world and discover something new.

This great new tool is accessible to anyone with a web browser, no application needed. Just load Google Chrome and visit https://www.google.com/earth/
