News Roundup - Fixes for Windows Vista, Airshows, FBOWeb update, Photos with Search

  • Fixes for Windows Vista - A new version of Google Earth is available for Windows - V4.0.2742. This release is primarily to address some issues with Windows Vista. No new version for the Mac. And, no new features.
  • Airshows - I missed this post at the Google Earth Community by Google and Big Moving Pictures (which makes the big jumbotron TV screens seen at sporting events and airshows). They announced the availability of a Google Earth calendar of placemarks showing the locations of North American Military Airshows for 2007 . There are two versions of the placemarks available in the file, one which lets you use the time slider to show the movement of the shows over the course of the year.
  • FBOWeb update - FBOWeb has updated their very cool Google Earth 3D flight tracking utilities. See the demo page here. In addition to being able to track all inbound flights to 8 major airports in the US, track a specific flight, and you can also see special 3D tracks and other information for recent aircraft incidents (crashes, near crashes, etc.). For more information on the flight tracking, read this previous blog post. This is cool stuff, if you haven't seen it, check it out.
  • Photos with Search - Google released a new feature for searches with Google Maps about two weeks ago. When you search for businesses, you can now get related photos. For example, if you search for "Computer History Museum, Mountain View, CA" you not only get the address, phone number, and web site, but also a photo. Click on "More Info" and you get tabs of information including 16 photos, 2 reviews and hundreds of web pages. My hope is that Google will implement the same capabilities in a future update to Google Earth so the information is consistent on both platforms. via Blogoscoped.
