  • US Congress information has been updated to reflect the 110th Congress (Senators and Representatives) who took office on January 4th.

  • Updates to other data layers (Volcanoes, ESA images, Tracks4Africa, etc.)
  • Updates to GEC [Google Earth Community] content to capture latest posts there.
    ...and as always, lots of subtle changes to refine both client at data.

Google Earth New Buildings Textures

Seems the big upadates are available with Google Earth 4 beta this allows to view higher quality 3D Buildings - many of which are photo-textured. Mapperz recommends that you install Google Earth 4 beta (build 4.0.2722) because it loads these models faster than the previous releases.
