Learn more about Google Earth Outreach with their Hangout on Air

Last week we showed you the excellent “Hangout on Air” (multi-user video chat on Google+) that a few members of the Google Earth team participated in. It was quite informative, and a great way to interact with users.
Later today, at 10:30am PDT (1:30pm EDT), the Google Earth Outreach team will be hosting a Hangout on Air to discuss the Google Maps Engine, formerly known as Google Earth Builder.

During the talk they’ll show you how you can upload geospatial data to host in the Google cloud, easily style the data, and publish maps on your website — all with Google Maps Engine. It should be an informative session. Just keep an eye on the main +Google Earth page on Google+ and they’ll get started in just a few hours.
If you’re not on there yet, Google+ is an amazing place to connect with other geo-minded people. Here is a circle of 83 of them to get you started, and please let me know of others that should be in that group.
You can find more details in this post on the +Google Earth page.
