Earth.Google

Google has released a free desktop software program to get you access to a huge amount of planetary imagining data – for free. I’m not sure how this (and their other free software such as Picasa and Goggle Desktop) generates revenue for Google shareholders, but I have to admit the software is pretty cool. They do sell and upgrade for $20 US per year that offers integration with GPS trackers.

  10. Hey apparently Google has partnered with National Geographic to put all of the articles they’ve done on Africa on the Africa maps, as well as include more detailed photos. I think this is a very cool idea and it’s great in action.

    You can read more about it on Google’s blog.

  11. This is a great program. But why can’t we focus in detail, things like people? You know, fine detail. I have cable internet and a fast computer. Please explain why?
