Recent Google Geonews: My Location for Google Maps, What's Here Feature, Chrome OS and much more from SlashGeo

Catching up from my holidays, here are the recent Google-related geonews I found interesting on the geoblogs. The official Google Lat Long blog shares these stories: the just announced My Location for Google Maps, no need for a mobile device anymore. There's also a new Google Maps directions gadget available for websites. There are also three posts on new 3D cities in Google Earth, Dursley, Warsaw, Prague and Oslo, Toronto and Indianapolis too. Probably more important, Google added a What's Here feature to Google Maps, finding relevant search items via reverse geocoding of a specified location. Google Earth is also becoming more and more foreign languages friendly. There's an entry on region-based marker clustering. Fortius One wonders what the freshly announced Google Chrome Operating System will mean for GIS. Ogle Earth shared, some time ago already, a detailed entry on the Amnesty International documentation of the Sri Lanka war aftermath with Google Earth. Mapperz mentions the new Google City Tours in their Labs: "The idea is that anyone can locate points of interest and plan up-to three day trips in major cities." The GEB mentions Snoovel, a Google Earth tour creation and hosting site. Even NASA is doing robotic recon with Google Earth. The same blog informs us about PhotoSketch, a tool to make 3D buildings from photos. See also related stories below.
