Brian Timoney of Timoney Group might think he is just engaging in some clever viral marketing when he releases demos of how he can help companies portray data in Google Earth, but this time he may just have come up with the best argument yet to justify installing Google Earth at the office, should your IT department have nixed the idea until now: You need it for financial analysis.
We’ve seen Google Earth used for geography, science, to illustrate historical events and as a social tool. Now it’s also an economic tool, as this network link of Latin American trade patterns makes clear. And there is some clever use of hovering involved. I love it.
