Google Earth installed fine and loads up OK but it never shows me any background imagery. Also the top of the display flickers intermittently even when nothing is moving. See screenshots below. I don't know where to start so I haven't tried anything yet. I don't seem to be having any display problems in other applications or in Unity.
Bernd Steinert, Geo Data Specialist with Google, announced on the Google Lat Long Blog today that new imagery has been added to Google’s Earth and Maps applications. The imagery consists of new, high resolution aerial and satellite images that cover 25 cities and 72 countries or regions.
After launching its new 3D imagery on mobile a few months ago, Google today finally brought these 3D buildings in select cities in the U.S. and Europe and its new tour guide feature to Google Earth 7 on the desktop.
Google Maps gets more awesome by the day. Earlier this week, the service started rolling out stunning underwater imagery- if you will, a seaview mode. Now Google took to the Google Maps blog to announces the inclusion of more high resolution images including a major build-out of 45-degree images.
This update brings a lot of new data to the mapping service.
