It looked dubious at times, but I did manage to travel yesterday from London to the US (of all days!) and made it to San Francisco today, where I’ll be at the bottom of the food chain at Science Foo Camp. Some of the discussions will surely be about geospatial data visualization, and the role geobrowsers are playing in democratizing access to such data. If anything relevant to Ogle Earth’s brief happens, I’ll blog it here, of course. In the meantime:
- iPhototoGoogleEarth is up to version 0.9 — it now works with Intel Macs.
- KML Regionator “is a set of sample Python classes, algorithms and scripts that exemplify some methods for creating Region-based KML” (from the readme.) Very handy &dmash; regions are very powerful, but quite a drag to code manually (I’ve had a look). A region-based KML generator is therefore a must if you want to create something non-trivial with it.
- Make Star Trek models with SketchUp, get them displayed at a Star Trek convention. What, no prizes? Deadline is this coming Sunday. (Via Google Earth Blog)
- It seems that Google Earth is no longer blocked in Bahrain, though nobody is terrible sure about what is going on.
- Orangetea is looking for beta testers for Fly With Me, a new service they’re developing where you can lead remote users on a collective tour of Google Earth places you’ve selected.
