Google Earth Lab
The Google Earth lab was a lot more fun than I was expecting it to be. I didn't realize that there were so many interesting features that allow you to search the imagery in such detail. Some things that I found interesting were, the place marker feature that allows you to find the distance and angle between two points, and the Parks/Recreation option was really interesting. In the Parks/Rec option you could see the entire Park outlined in green, and you could also view the Park entrance or overlooks. The overlook feature was the coolest because you can look around as if you were standing on the overlook point.
