Cricket World Cup 2007 Venues in Google Earth

Cricket World Cup 2007 Venues in Google EarthThe Cricket World Cup 2007 venues are located in the West Indies of the Caribbean. The Radioactive Yak has posted a Google Earth collection of placemarks showing the location of these venues. You can select the folder called "World Cup 2007 Venues" and then select the menu choice "Tools->Play Tour" to see a flying tour of the different cricket stadiums set up for this year's events. Many of the stadiums have been upgraded for this year's event, so the photos you see in Google Earth are the way the stadiums used to look a year or more ago. Some of the locations don't even have a high resolution yet. Although, none of the Caribbean had high resolution photos until less than a year ago - so what you see now is actually a big improvement. And, I think Google is the only mapping tool publicly available, at the moment, with high resolution photos for the Caribbean.

Read the Yak's post for other World Cup information including Google Maps, and Google Calendar tools for following the games. Radioactive Yak last May posted other Cricket Stadium locations for Google Earth.
