Anyone looked into porting Google Earth over to Linux for Puppy?

http://kh.google.com/download/earth/index.html

I have seen satellite images that go from planet to continent to nation to state to county to town to neighborhood to house to table-in-house to bread-on-table to fly-on-bread ... but I cannot tell you where I saw it! Wink

That said these images are fascinating and I sure resent being forced to run M$ to view them ... ;-(

Just wondering ... doc

Nothing apparent so far, it may just be like adding a Google Search toolbar.

Require RSS or ATOM feed (haven't set that up yet) and to accurately locate requires M$ Explorer.

Google Earth has satellite images. You can zoom in to amazing detail. I could easily tell the difference between trucks and cars on a remote highway in New Mexico.

Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure Google Earth is a binary which only runs in Windows.

That is all my son can talk about lately. I took him to the MS Terra Server and he said it was ok but nothing like Google Earth. I said Oh Well. They are working on a Mac version but no mention of X.

Might have to try it out at the library but it is not on my priority list Wink

I'd try it on my Windows setup, but my system is a good ways below the required, so I figured I'd just wait 'till I get my laptop. So for now I'll just be satisfied with the map. It's even better than if mapquest and globexplorer combined.

There is a ton of fairly high resouloution arial and sattelite out there, some of it is all fancy and drag-n-drop and some of it is older but it is all good stuff. I Just noticed that my buddy Dean put an addition on his house. I never would have known from out front lol. I had a screenshot of 4 firefox windows with a variety of satellite and ariel photos of the same location in different years, black and white high contrast and color but I didn't think it was worth the webspace.

Fun Tho.
