Maps Terrain in GE – This is cool – a long time ago, someone named ‘BernardMuc’ at the GEC posted a cool network link that lets you overlay Google Maps image tiles into Google Earth. He’s now enabled the ability to add a parameter to overlay the new Terrain layer from Maps into GE! Just add the “&TERR=Y” parameter to the network link to add the feature. Nice!
