Flash Earth inside Google Earth

Flash Earth inside Google Earth

The amazing Flash Earth is a great application on itself.

Now combined it with the Desktop Google Earth (4.2)

and it becomes a very useful and powerful resource for users to compare areas where imagery and digital coverage is 'blurred'.

Layers available in Flash Earth are
  • Google Maps
  • Microsoft Virtual Earth (VE) Aerial
  • Microsoft Virtual Earth (VE) Labels
  • Yahoo Maps
  • Ask Maps
  • Ask Aerial
  • Open Layers
  • NASA Terra (Daily)

Flash Earth inside Google Earth

Even Google Earth Rotation is maintained when the Flash Earth is activated inside Google Earth.

"What if the current view in Google Earth was quickly viewable in other maps, such as those made accessible by FlashEarth? Well, now it is. As you move around the globe a little white arrow follows you around, simple click it to get an approximation of the current view in FlashEarth in a popup balloon."

Total credit to Valery35, for the concept (including a screenshot) on the Google Earth Community and to all the people made all the bits that could be pieced together in this 15min hack.

Hi, just wanted to tell you that I created a little google maps game. It is called placespotting and it is about finding places on earth... You get a satellite image and some tips and have to find the place on a google map. You can also create your own riddles and send them to your friends. Of course it's free and you need no registration.
