Google Earth Update: Places of interest and icons

For those of you who have not noticed, Google Earth has been updated — with Places of Interest receiving the biggest update. Before, this feature was at the bottom of the list, now it features almost near the top with a number of changes all designed to offer a better experience.

Before the update, places of interest had subitems for you to select — now there is just one checkbox. You will also notice that the icons have changed in Google Earth, they will even appear to you different now. If you are viewing from high above, all you will see is major attractions such as airports, museums stadiums, and much more.

Once you begin to zoom in you will then get to see other items, such as hotels and restaurants. Other changes made include reordering, traffic has now been moved to the more category and much more.
