October was another great month for Google Earth. Here are a few of my favorite stories from the last 30 days:
The month began with 3DConnexion releasing their excellent “SpaceMouse” controller, a solid follow-up to the popular “SpaceNavigator”.
With Google continuing to phase out some aspects of the 3D Warehouse, we looked at our favorite 3D models of all time.
For Biblical scholars, we showed you some tools to view geographical context to the items you’re studying.
We looked at the best roller coasters that can be seen in Google Earth.
With the leaves beginning to change color for many of our readers, we looked at some of the science behind that transformation.
We showed you five tools that can help to make Google Earth more useful for you.
We posted a touching follow-up to the story of Saroo Brierly, who used Google Earth to help find the home that he lost decades earlier.
Google released a large batch of fresh imagery on October 21.
We showed you some ways to view the upcoming solar eclipse, using Google Earth to find the best time and location for viewing.
We saw some great new 3D imagery in Salt Lake City, Detroit and a few other areas.
Lastly, we took a look at some great tools from GEB reader “Dj” to help track the Scott Expedition to the south pole.
