Cool stuff.

If you've never visited the Rumsey Collection,
this specialty database is currently home to more than 13,600 digitized maps. According to the Rumsey site, Google Earth is providing access to 16 maps.

Btw, if digital globes are of interest. Take a look at a new plug-in from SkylineGlobe (U.S. only) at this point and NASA's World Wind.

Note: Allows access to KML/KMZ files.

WorldWind (open source, volunteer project)

Special note to the What's New section:

Can now import KML/KMZ files
The Add-Ons Blog

and the fact that you can use MS Virtual Earth with it.

Is there a way to change the "opacity" of theses layers? (from 0% to 100%...)
