Google today announce the {ln:nw:http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/02/dive-into-new-google-earth.html 'launch} of Google Earth 5.0 with loads of new features and ocean and history imagery. Google Earth had oceans as big blue expanse and some low-resolution shading to suggest the depth but now Google Earth includes bathymetric map (the ocean floor).

Now you can drop below the surface of the ocean and explore the ocean in 3D with videos and other information provided by National Geography and other resources.

Google Earth and Google Maps are now a key elements to find geographical information. It has proven useful for so many things such as {ln:nw:http://www.informationmadness.com/oldsite_backup/gmaps/mumbaimetro.html 'Metro Train Maps}, {ln:Bangalore Rental Property on Google Maps 'property search} etc. But Swiss police found it useful to crack down the Weed racket.

Swiss police say that the marijuana field was discovered in Thurgau sometime last year while they were investigating a suspected drug ring. Officers were apparently trying to use Google Earth to locate the exact address of two farmers they suspected of being involved in the ring, and came across the two-acre-large planation hidden in a field of corn in the process.

ImageIndian Railways is one of the largest and busiest rail networks in the world. Indian Railways transport 18 million passengers daily and more than 2 million tonnes of freight dialy. If you don't know, Indian Railways is also world's largest commercial/utility employer (more than 12 million employees).

I always wonder why Indian Railway Maps are not digitized. Every time you search for Indian Railway Maps, you end up with mapsofindia.com. That is frustrating. When Google launched its Map APIs, I was so desperate to create Indian Trains Google Mashup but the job that pays my bill always comes in my way. Guess what? I finally found a website which shows all the Indian trains on the Google Map with their train routes plotted on Google Map.

Just noticed this today. When you zoom in all the way in at the intersections the street numbers are placed and shows the side of the street that is odd or even.

Google has included tremendouse features into its maps. Last year Google maps included major highway exit numbers, street views and now street numbers. It is an improvement. USA has one nice thing about giving numbers to the streets. On one side it is always odd number and the other side of the street it is always even numbers.

So now when going to a new location, it is easier for someone to figure out what side of the street is even and what side of the street is odd. By looking at the number, you can now locate the address you are looking for easily with Google Maps street numbers. Some times the marker is not clear when you do a look up and then want to look at the correct address.
