California, Nov 30: The internet giant Google Inc has launched the updated version of Google Earth with 3D experience.

The new Google Earth 6 has integrated Street View experience and 3D trees. The new version offers the Street View experience which allows the users to zoom in and see 360-degree.

In the new version, Google has docked Pegman, the orange icon used to navigate Street View, with the navigation controls. Now users can move seamlessly from one location to another.

"And unlike our earlier Street View layer, you can now move seamlessly from one location to another as if you're walking down the street by using the scroll-wheel on your mouse or the arrow keys on your keyboard," Google said in a blog post.

New features in Google Earth 6:

* Integrated Street View
* 3D trees
* Easy-to-use historical imagery

"We"ve made it very easy to discover historical imagery. When you fly to an area where historical imagery is available, the date of the oldest imagery will appear in the status bar at the bottom of the screen," describes Google.
