Google Earth Track

Google Earth release version 5.2 earlier this week. A wicked new feature is the ability to import GPS data and create a fly-by movie of your trip.

Check out this cool sample video for an idea of how it works:

Pretty amazing – can’t wait to see some trail movies from folks in the hiking world :)

    Hey, what did you use to capture the GPS data and how did you do it?

    David – looks like you can import from a Garmin or Magellan device currently. They appear to have an option to import from a KML file also, but i coudn’t get the KML data generated by my easy showily gps to import.
