Just two weeks ago Ogle Earth ran into the Gombe Chimpanzee Blog, which uses Google Earth as the browser of choice for displaying its location-based entries. This week, a system that lets you do just that automatically, courtesy of Adam Burt: Geo-Blogging.
Geo-Blogging is Mac-only at the moment, and it is built on the open-source Blojsom blogging system, but even so non-Mac non-Blojsom users might want to take a look to see what’s coming.
Adam’s system involves installing a special template that produces a KML version of his blog, to which a Google Earth network link can subscribe. The entire process is a bit more convoluted than that, but he’s got copious screencasts that make it easy to grasp. Adam also has a Flickr set of screenshots.
(Separately, Adam’s application got me to take a closer look at Blojsom as a blogging tool, and I came away impressed.)
