Geospatial Solutions’ Mary Jo Wagner did an interview of Michael Jones, apparently back in May. Michael was a co-founder of Keyhole Inc. which made the product Google bought that became Google Earth. He is now the Chief Technology Officer of Google Earth. Michael is an excellent speaker and he shares some very interesting insight into Google’s perspective about Google Earth. He emphasizes strongly that Google has many indirect benefits from GE that are helping it derive real business profits for its huge investment. He also lists some of the direct ways it is deriving revenue (customers who buy the Plus, Pro and Enterprise versions of GE). Definitely a worthwhile read!
