Google Earth is impressive, but you can quickly grow tired of the included datasets. Well thanks to a new website called Google Earth Hacks you can now browse and share the KMZ view files that Google Earth creates. There’s a labeled version of Walt Disney World, a 3D Golden Get Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, and the Washington Monument. Also available is a connection to Flickr where you can see peoples photos from around the world spatially inside Google Earth. If you spend any time working with ArcGlobe, you should check out some of these hacks” for ideas in your own projects. There isn’t anything here that can’t be done in ArcGlobe. I just wish that you didn’t have to own a copy of ArcView and 3D Analyst to gain access to it.
