Upgrading the way the people view the globe and search for travel destinations, search engine, Google has unveiled the latest version of Google Earth.

Launched late last week, Google Earth 6.2 was designed to allow people to search for their favourite destinations through a new search interface and with “seamless imagery”.

According to the company’s Official Google Blog, the company has adjusted the its search panel to include Autocomplete and also introduced new search layers that will show all relevant results not just the top ten like the previous version.

In addition to the usual car directions, the new version of Google Earth also includes biking, transit and walking directions for those looking for route information.

In relation to visibility, Google advised it had introduced a new way of rendering imagery on the site of “smooth out” the quality of “patchy” pictures taken under high altitude environments.

“The end result is a beautiful new Earth-viewing experience that preserves the unique textures of the world’s most defining geographic landscapes-without the quilt effect,” the blog read.

“This change is being made on both mobile and desktop versions of Google Earth.”

As well as searching and admiring desired location and destinations, Google had also launched the Google + share for travellers to relay their Google Earth findings on their Google + profile.

Searchers can screenshot their current view in Google Earth and share it on their Google social networking page.
