Battles and Routes of Alexander the Great

OK, I have to admit it. Google Earth is really cool. Not only can you use it to see who may have been parking in front of the homes of people you know, you can make some interesting history tools. Battles and Routes of Alexander the Great is a real nice example. It follows Alexander's route, presents maps of cities and shows the sites of battles. There is additional content added from Wikipedia and National Geographic.

I spent a good half hour playing with this. Tons of fun if you like ancient history. Another neat use of Google Earth is Secret Images of Google Earth. The creepy music goes along nice with the revealed images.

hi, I search Google Earth, and it is really an interesting stuff.
Do you think those UFO-like images are really alien made?
