The June Sightseer is out, with lots of great stuff inside

Google has just released the June issue of the Sightseer newsletter, with all of kinds of great information inside. If you don’t get this great newsletter emailed to you every month, we’ll give you a quick peek at what you’ll find inside. If you’d like, you can sign up here to receive it each month.

While you’ve likely already read many of the stories they feature, here’s a look at some of what’s included:
Google Earth 5.2
Google Earth for iPad
World Cup stadiums in 3D
World Oceans Day
The June 15 Imagery Update
Along with the feature stories, they also cover some unique Google Earth content that has been produced in the last month. Some are from our blog, but others (like the excellent “History of Islamic Architecture“) can be found elsewhere.
Finally, they have their challenging “Where in the World?” challenge. They post an image of a location and you need to figure out where it is. I call it “challenging” because I can never find them. :) However, I’m always amazed by some of the people that can find these locations so quickly. Here is the image for this month:

If you’re able to find it, congrats! Just don’t spoil it for anyone else. If you enjoy that kind of challenge, check out Place Spotting, which has a series of images of similar difficulty.

    Easy “where in the world?” The boat tied up at the harbour is not all that it seems :-)

  2. I only know that “Where in the world” as I have been there, and oddly was looking at it in GE the other day. It is far more interesting in real life by the way. Just don’t get locked in!

  3. Regardless of what you may have been told, it’s not really on the Adriatic.
