Hello there. I am Terry and I am a full-time undergraduate based in Singapore. I take photos, write a blog and design websites.

And no, I'm not a teddy bear.

Google Earth

It is really impressive for Google to develop such a program called Google Earth. This program combines satellite imagery, maps and the power of Google Search to put the world’s geographic information at your fingertips. You can’t deny that it is cool!!!

With Google Earth, we can:

1. Fly from space to your neighborhood. Type in an address and zoom right in.
2. Search for schools, parks, restaurants, and hotels. Get driving directions.
3. Tilt and rotate the view to see 3D terrain and buildings.
4. Save and share your searches and favorites. Even add your own annotations.

Visit the Google Earth Homepage now! If you’re interested, you can download it from here (totally FREE!!! :D That’s the good thing about it)!

I’ve install Google Earth a few weeks ago and have took some screenshots:

Mt St Helens in the 3D terrain generation (left) and Manhattan, somewhere near ground zero (right).

My hometown, Subang Jaya, is featured too (left); Singapore the beautiful garden city (right).

Paris Eiffel Tower (left) and devastated Banda Aceh (right).

Isn’t it cool?
