Today Google launched a new experimental feature for crafting and sharing stories using Google Earth. Released in honor of Veteran’s Day, Tour Builder—which requires both the Google Earth plug-in and a Google account—allows users to create a virtual tour using photos, descriptions and mapped points (or pinned locations). 

TheUnited Service Organizationsand United Statesveteranshave already added their own tours, though the company hopes others—such as touring musicians and educators—will find broader uses for the tool.
