EarthTools: The Geographer's Google Maps

EarthTools might as well be featured on "Pimp my Google Maps" because it is that good. Earth Tools uses Google Maps as a base while providing extras like Sunrise, Sunset, Civil, Nautical, and Astronomical Twilight; local time; and Elevation data. In some countries like Ireland an extra map layer which shows contour lines are available. Just take a look at Sugarloaf Mountain.

Now if these tools could be (or if someone could show me) integrated into Google Earth or GeoPortal I would be thrilled. (Hat Tip: Spatial Ireland)
