GoogleTouring - my Google Earth hack

Google Earth rocks.

This fantastic new tool gives you true 3D satellite imagery of the entire earths surface on your desktop, with realtime rendering and flying animation. You can fly around to different places in the world, getting astounding pictures of anywhere on earth. You can also get driving directions, route planning, and find masses of services, roads, hotels, etc.

Over the last few days I've been working on exploiting a feature in Google Earth and have created a website, GoogleTouring which archives animated tours of interesting places and scenic flights to take with GE. Take a look and please let me know what you think!
