Today I finally had a moment to check out the Google Earth site. I downloaded the program - and there was the whole world in detail on my screen! :wink:

I've been all around the island of Crete, I've visited the Eiffel Tower and Saint Peter's Church in Rome, I've pinpointed my own house in my small Italian countryside town (my car was parked in front of it!) and made sure I could also actually see the house where my daughter lives in Copenhagen...

It is so amazing! Should you want to check out your favourite places on earth, the just go: http://earth.google.com/downloads.html

No, the basic "Google Earth" is free for everybody to use without registering!

:lol:

if it is better- in resolution- I can see my own place too , but it looks
like it is an old shoot .

Remember to change your resolution in "Control Panel" and "screen" - if you put the highest solution when you're wathing you'll get a perfect picture! :wink:

Google Earth is far too addictive!

I've been looking all over Crete (sadly none of it is in really "close up" sharpness yet).

I've looked at Area 51 in Nevada, The Pyramids in Egypt, and a place called Tucston (sp?) in Arizona that's got hundreds and hundreds of planes being dismantled.

Fun for all the family!

Just looking through old posts, I think I'm going to have to download this program. Hah, Tucson, Arizona is where I live (during the school year at least). Its currently VERY hot.... and no beaches to cool down. I miss Crete!

Hi Dinny
Sorry but maybe I am having a "blond moment" but, I have downloaded the google earth and I am having the same problem with the resolution. Do you mean to change the resolution on the control panel in windows or the options on the google earth site.
Soooo excited, , , this is my first post as a member. :lol: :P :lol: :P :wink:

:lol: Hi Anne, welcome to the best Crete site on the web!

ehehheh I like this versione ... "blonde moment" :wink:
(Apparently we both had one, since I've just responded to your "ICE post" while I could not figure out what the problem would be)

Anyway, you should change it on the control panel... and unless you want to read "ants" forever, you should change it back when finishing watching Earth Google

Thanks for that Dinny and thanks for the answer. I cant wait to get home now and check it out on our computer. I dont have it on the office one, dont think the boss would be too happy if I spent all day on a "world tour".
Started off a bit cloudy up here this morning, how was the weather in your neck of the woods? Settling in well?
