It’s Google Earth’s 10th birthday today, so Google is celebrating with a few new features to help you explore some more cool sights around the wold.
A new layer called Voyager (currently only available on the desktop) helps you quickly jump straight to some of the most interesting locations around the world, and is made up of five different sections
Street view will showcase some of the best locations to explore at street level, while Earth View will highlight some of the best landscapes as seen from space. Meanwhile, new satellite imagery provides a map of some of the newest overhead location photos, and 3D cities show of some of the best renderings of cities and towns.
You can also access a highlight tour that will surface top locations from thousands in Voyager’s database.
Google is also expanding its Earth View image collection to 1,500 landscapes from around the globe. You can add these to your new tabs in Chrome via Google’s own extension, or make them your wallpaper by downloading from the new Earth View Web gallery.
