Diving into Google Earth

Via Divester comes another example of how geographic content can be made to come alive by integrating it with Google Earth. Dive-spots.com lists dive spots in the Florida Keys area; when you drill down to an individual dive spot, you get the option to save the location in your favourites, download the GPX file for your GPS device, see a map or download the KML and open it in Google Earth. (You may have to register.) The locations are usually in shallow water, so in some cases you actually get to see [KML] the artifacts in Google Earth below the water’s surface. Very nice.
