Updating Important Old Posts

Now that Google Earth 5 is out, its time to do some house cleaning at Google Earth Blog. The GE Basics page is intended to provide an overview of important features and interfaces for Google Earth. However, many of these sections describe features which have changed with GE 5. So, expect to see some of these older posts appear again with updated descriptions in the coming days or weeks. If you’re a long time GEB reader, just consider it an opportunity to refresh your knowledge with some new facts. I’ll try to add interesting new details and examples where it makes sense.
