Google Earth, cover model

cover_nature.jpgI’m off to read a whole slew of articles on mass mapping, virtual globes and in particular Google Earth in this week’s edition of Nature , but I thought you might like to know now and get started yourself. Declan Butler, who wrote many of them and snagged some great interviews at both Google and ESRI, introduces the week’s issue on his blog, and links to the articles directly. They are all on free access, and I suspect this is something we can thank Declan for.
