Google has released version 5.0 of its Google Earth Plugin (our Google Earth API profile), a browser plugin that enables users to load Google Earth in the browser. The latest release includes several new features that make the plugin, and its corresponding API, even more valuable for geospatial visualization.
The geo mapping platform ecosystem has grown a little more as the competition between Google Maps and Bing Maps just got a lot more interesting. It's been less than a week since we covered the release of a variety of new features for Bing Maps, including the addition of new StreetSide panoramic imagery similar to that used in Google Maps StreetView. At the time, it seems that Bing Maps was making a move to "catch up" with Google Maps in terms of immersive street-level panoramic photos. And now Google has countered back with the release of "aerial perspective imagery" similar to the Bird's Eye View imagery used in Google Maps.
The Google Static Maps API (our Google Static Maps API Profile) is quite popular with developers looking for a relatively lightweight method of including Google Maps as rapidly-loading images on web sites. If you're not familiar with this API, it essentially allows you to add a custom Google Map (including markers and paths) as the source for an image element on a web page.
