Google has posted an interesting video about how to easily add a 3D view to your map, when using the Google Maps API, by taking advantage of Google Earth.

In the video, Josh Livni, of Google Maps Developer Relations talks about integrating Google Earth using just four lines of code. He walks through a basic Maps API example, adding a 3D view.

There’s a code library for the Google Earth API available here.

    Hi Chris, nice tutorial but the Google Earth API has been deprecated as of December 12th, 2014. The API will continue to work on supported browsers until December 12th, 2015, and will shut down on that date.
    Will this method work ?
