This is the Earth I was looking for...

Well I wasn't waiting all that long as today Google released Google Earth for the iPhone.


Sure enough there is geo-location support and the controls are fairly intuitive, including the use of the accelerometer to control your viewing angle which is a fairly neat trick.

Disappointingly, at least from my point of view, there isn't any support for Google Sky. Or at least there isn't any support yet, I'm still hopeful. Time to start lobbying the people I know in Google. I guess the Google Sky and MS WWT tutorial at ADASS will be a good place to start. I'm already talking there anyway.

To get Google Earth on your iPhone, visit the App Store in iTunes...
