A few days ago, we showed you a quick glimpse of how Google Maps could be used inside of a Google Wave. Today, less than 24 hours after the semi-public release of Google Wave, Roman Nurik has already released a slick little gadget to embed the Google Earth plug-in in a wave.
To add it to a wave, simply click the green “Add Gadget by URL” icon and use the following URL: http://www.nurik.net/gadgets/earthwavegadget.xml
This gadget will fire up the plug-in, and plot the locations of all of the users in the wave. There aren’t any other options than that, but it’s more of a proof-of-concept than anything. The idea of combining the Google Earth Plug-in with Google Wave’s real-time collaboration has some awesome potential.
If you have access to Wave, check it out and let us know what you think. If you find any other great geo-related Wave gadgets, please feel free to let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Below you’ll find a short video I created that shows exactly how to use this gadget:
