new version of Google Earth and the St. Louis monolith

There is a new version of Google Earth and it features 3D textured buildings... just what I've been waiting for.

I started Google Earth, upgraded to the new version, and began exploring. The Manhattan and Boston skylines looked great. What should I check out next?

I remembered how impressed Hayley was when she drove by the Gateway Arch in St. Louis on Sunday afternoon, so I headed west. I was in for a surprise. Instead of the arch, I found a monolith with the shadow of an arch. I guess the software could not interpret a curve and thought it was a rectangle. Despite this, the new version of Google Earth is still great!

  1. Have you checked out any of the APRS stuff you can do with Google Earth. Pretty neat stuff and simple too!
