Google Site Seeing

Visit the new blog, Google Site Seeing, in which the posts consist of clips of Google maps satellite images. I love the bog’s subtitle: Why bother seeing the world for real?

    I’ve always thought satellite images would be a powerful way to draw people’s attention to some of the effects we’re having on the environment. Getting people to go to a google maps type site, and actually be able to ‘look’ at places where deforestation is currently occurring, glaciers are melting, or coal mine fires are burning, might cause people to gain a better understanding of the scope of the problems.

    I recall seeing something slightly similar with aerial photos of clearcut before and fater in the interior BC, which were otherwise hidden from view because of the mountains, they were quite striking.

    Hmm…interesting. It’s almost more inviting than brochures, because
    people have been willing to put together the pictures and blog themselves.
