Next week will be a big news week for Google Earth Blog. As has been reported, I will be attending the Where 2.0 conference which is a gathering of the makers and developers for 2.0 mapping technologies and Google Earth. Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, ESRI and all the big players in the new Internet mapping technologies are sponsoring and attending this show. In addition, Google is hosting a special invite-only Google Geo Developer Day to announce some new things for Google Maps and Google Earth, and to provide an opportunities for developers to meet with the Google teams which develop those applications. Google has also invited me to make a presentation, along with Mike Pegg of GoogleMapsMania, of a few of the more interesting applications for Google Earth and Google Maps. There will probably be many interesting new announcements, so check Google Earth Blog often all next week. I think yesterday’s big release of new aerial photography for GE is just the beginning.
