Ogle Earth on the radio

On the occasion of Google Maps and Google Earth’s 5th anniversary, CBC-Radio Canada’s show The Current broadcast a 20-minute segment on the geopolitical impact of these revolutionary new maps over the past few years. The host Jim Brown interviews me and Michael Frank Goodchild, Professor of Geography at UC Santa Barbara.

It turned out to be a fun show, with the host focusing on the day that Google accidentally showed Indian-administered Arunachal Pradesh as being Chinese, and the fallout from that errror.
