Google Earth Bigger, Better

Google Earth is a program that allows you to get a 3D image of our world in which you can see streets and buildings along with making directions with a flyby view. The new version has more detailed images for non big cities. On the last version, I checked out what Armenia looked like and this is similar to what it was.
