Google goes seamless

The image quality in Google Earth used to be bad. If you want to look at a place you had to view a bunch of stacked up rectangular photos to see what you are looking for. It was irritating in that some of the pics were darker and some had clouds since you never knew when the satellite passed over the area.

Google Earth version 6.2 launched today and Google has some fancy new tech that takes all those individual pics we used to see and mashed them together into into a seamless globe. No more gaps and the images are balanced out for darkness and clouds too.

You can also now share your place using Google+ so others can see where you have been or where you want to go. Only Google+ is supported right now for sharing. You can also get directions for walking and biking right on the Google Earth maps.
