Google Earth has scheduled an event for Monday after next to “announce the next big step in the evolution of Google Earth.” It’s at the snazzy new California Academy of Sciences science museum in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, and among the speakers is former Vice President Al Gore. Also attending are representatives of the National Geographic Society, including ocean explorer Sylvia Earle.
I don’t know the specifics of the news, but over at CNet, Stephen Shankland is speculating that it might involve 3D maps of the world’s oceans. Sounds logical enough. I plan to attend the event, and will let you know what transpires.
