The Scientific Applications for Google Earth Conference is only two
weeks away so if you have not yet registered please do so soon.
Faculty, professionals, and students are welcome to attend. For those
of you who have already registered, please pass this along to your
The conference is focused on exploring science data visualization and
public policy applications with Google Earth, Google Maps, and KML.
The Scientific Applications for Google Earth Conference is scheduled
for October 22nd and 23rd in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The two-day event
will bring together academics, researchers and students from all over
the country to discuss the scientific uses of virtual globes and how
that technology is enabling newer and richer data interaction
experiences for both expert and novice users.
Keynote speakers include:
Tim Killeen, Assistant Director for Geosciences at the National
Dan Adkins, former Director of the National Science Foundation Office
Sean Askay, Google Earth Outreach Evangelist
Michael Weiss-Malik, KML Product Manager
We are reaching out to many areas of science and academics including:
Medical disease tracking
Urban Planning and infrastructure
Participants are invited to bring posters and will have a forum to
exchange their ideas and work with others with similar focus and
Google engineers will work directly with students and researchers on
ways to overcome technical problems and to provide training for those
interested in advanced techniques with KML. Registration for the
event is now open, details are available on the conference website.
If you can't make it to Ann Arbor this Fall please check out our other
initiative focused on KML content. We have created an exciting new
contest geared towards educational content in Google Earth. The KML
in Research contest is open to both students and professionals. We
think this will be a fun way for people working with KML to get some
exposure for their work and perhaps win some prizes!
In addition to prizes, winners will have their work showcased at the
American Geophysical Union's annual Fall meeting on December 15th!
Thanks and hope to see you in Ann Arbor,
Ryan Falor, Google Earth Education Outreach
