UK Street View Spring? – According to this TechRadar post, Google will be releasing Street View in the UK this Spring. No official word on this. Thanks to a tip from GEB reader Jacob.
Archaeology Trip – Stefan went on a special tour to archaeological sites not normally visited by foereigners in middle-Egypt. He used a GPS to track the entire trip and took lots of geotagged photos. He explains in detail the tools he used to create a Google Earth file sharing the entire trip.
iPhone Google Earth Tips – Stefan continues comments on his archaeological trip by describing how he used the iPhone Google Earth application while examining the sites. One of the nice features of GE (including the iPhone version) is that it caches imagery. So, even though the sites had poor (or expensive) Inernet access, he simply loaded the imagery for each site the night before (while at hotels with free WIFI) and used iPhone GE while they visited the sites the next day. He also used the iPhone to take screenshots for certain views to speed up the ability to view (without having to load the app). Great tips!
