[UPDATE 1900 EDT: Google has posted a master network link where they have compiled a bunch of resources. It will automatically update with new stuff as they add it. Download the master layer for the California fires here .]
Just a quick few links – I’m traveling today:
More Fire Maps – Google posted a compilation of many different organizations and individuals using Google Maps to track the fires in California as well as relief efforts. Google also has released a zoomable high-res overlay of a recent DigitalGlobe satellite photo of a portion of the fires in San Diego, and later they added new imagery from NASA and the USFS showing thermal imagery of the area. See other GE related content here .
New Tutorials – Google has released some new tutorials at Google Earth Outreach on how to make maps with Google Maps which can also be used with Google Earth.
