Google has launched a new Google Earth site featuring images, videos, tous, maps, and tutorials. 

"When you think of Google Earth, you might think about flying to the top of Mt. Everest, surveying the ancient Acropolis, or simply finding the house where you grew up," says Product Marketing Manager Tasha Danko. "For the past five years, people all over the world have been discovering new places to explore through our community, blogs, news articles and Gallery. Now you can go to one place—our brand new Google Earth website—to find everything you’re looking for."
