Google Earth Adds Wikipedia and Other Layers


Google announced news layers in Google Earth, including a layer of Wikipedia entries. From the official blog: “The
new Geographic Web layer we released today is one of those features.
We’ve taken the rich data of Wikipedia, Panoramio, and the Google Earth
Community and made a browsable layer in Google Earth. Now you can fly
anywhere in the world and see what people have written about it,
photographed, or posted.
