There’s only three posts so far, but one of them turns this new Google Earth blog into a must-see. Mart√≠n Cadirola’s Using Google Earth for Earth Science and Remote Sensing exists “to get my fellow colleagues at NASA and other organizations and agencies acquainted with Google Earth and its potential for integrating, visualizing and collaborating information.”
And how. Mart√≠n posts a few “samples of KML files” in this post. The last one, Orbital satellites [KML] contains an orbital snapshot of every satellite I’ve ever heard of, and plenty of other ones too. It looks gorgeous. It’s not live, but it could be, and as such it works well as a lovely piece of eye candy and as proof of concept.
In this post Mart√≠n links to a PowerPoint presentation online that he used to introduce Google Earth as part of a pitch by his company to help NASA use the application to visualize their mountains of data. The possibilities he outlines seem broad indeed.
