Shorts: Java quake overlays, Arc2Earth update, Second Life mashups

  • Mikel Maron at Brain Off turns post-Java quake aerial assessment images into a layer for Google Earth. (Caution, huge file.)
  • Brian Flood updates Arc2Earth so that Google Warehouse content can be directly imported into Google Earth from the native SketchUp format, rather than have to manually create KML for those objects that don’t already have it.
  • A Flickr – Second Life mashup, with video demo, making use of new API features introduced inthe latest release.
  • Elsewhere, somebody’s hacked Second Life’s new built-in 2D web browser so that it can show actual web content, not just SL’s help section. Convergence continues apace. (Via Clickable Culture)
