Over the years, Google has managed to map our world near to its entirety. Nowadays, if you want to get the feel of a certain area or neighborhood, you can check it out on Google Maps or Google Earth first. You can explore the entire world with Google Street View and Earth, and here’s how to do that.
Google Street View
Street View on Google Maps (and Earth) is something that most of us are already familiar with. Be honest, you looked up your house on Street View at least once. Some people even dream to be captured by the famous Street View cars, and they try really hard to make that happen. And it’s a really good way to explore the world, especially the urban one, one neighborhood at a time.
If you want to become familiar with a certain area of your city or a foreign city you’ve never been to before, Google Street View is a good starting point because it combines the orientation info offered by Maps with actual 360 images of the entire place.
While Google Street View is small scale and urban focused, Google Earth is a live multidimensional map of our entire planet. If there’s a place on Earth that’s interesting, you can most likely explore it on Google Earth. And thanks to the latest update, this app is now also totally revamped and ready to both educate and entertain its visitors.
The most interesting spots on our planet now benefit from information cards, and you can take 3D tours of everything. That’s pretty great, isn’t it? Gone are the times when Google Earth was boring and you only ever visited it for a tedious school project or something similar. The app has now become a place where you can learn and also have a bit of fun.
