Google Earth goes 4D

Last week, Microsoft captured the lead in its maps race with Google by releasing 3D maps in its Virtual Earth product, and now, Google's pulled ahead by offering historical maps on Google Earth. While the resolution is lacking, it's an interesting contrast to see antiquated maps overlaid over modern satellite-generated layers.

Some of the maps available are:
  • World Globe 1790
  • North America 1733
  • United States 1833
  • Lewis and Clark 1814
  • New York 1836
  • San Francisco 1853
  • South America 1787
