Business and Google Earth in Information Week

Information Week has just published a story called “Google Earth Catches on in the Business World“. This story starts off by pointing out how Google really is taking over the Earth. “Search for ‘Earth’ on Yahoo and the first result you get is–Google Earth.” There’s a mention of Bentley’s Microstation CAD software now supporting GE, and several other businesses supporting or using GE. This was the first time I’d heard that “Dell uses Google Earth to track business customers’ equipment in Asia as part of its inventory management system.” It then goes on to talk about the rapid evolution of the many applications and businesses supporting GE, and the diverse uses people are making of it. Definitely worth a read.
Google Earth Blog regulary writes about business applications of Google Earth. Check out the Business Category for many other interesting business-related stories.
