We’ve discussed the groundbreaking “Powers of Ten” video on GEB a few times (the last being in December), as Google Earth is amazing platform to explore some of the concepts in the film. If you’ve not yet seen it, you can view the video here:
A while back, Rich Treves at Google Earth Design posted a KMZ file that allowed you to explore the video in Google Earth. He’s now taken it a step further and (with the help of his friend Michael) created a script that allows you to enter a location and have the blue squares generated with your location in the center. Here’s what mine looks like:
You can read about this new script on his blog, or visit this page to have your custom file created. He’s hoping to add a tour feature to it in the future, but for now you can zoom in and out manually to see the various squares.
Great work, Rich!
