GE Bloggers Have the Earth Covered

New high resolution terrain in Google Earth - Grand CanyonFor nearly two years, Stefan Geens of OgleEarth and I have been covering news, content and technologies about Google Earth and related applications. We each have a slightly different slant, and try not to duplicate each other’s content too often. Although we have spoken via VOIP and E-mailed since the summer of 2005, we met fo the first time just a couple of days ago. As you can see from this picture, we pretty much feel like we have the Earth covered. That’s me, Frank Taylor on the left – and Stefan Geens on the right. This photo was taken this afternoon (Thursday June 7th) while attending the ISDE5 conference in Berkeley, California. Thanks to Matt Nolan for taking the photo. And no, I haven’t geotagged the photo or even added GeoRSS to my posts! But, I will be doing that more in the future.

He has worked with 3D computer graphics and VR for many years and was very impressed with this exciting product. Frank completed a 5.5 year circumnavigation of the earth by sailboat in June 2015 which you can read about at Tahina Expedition, and is a licensed pilot, backpacker, diver, and photographer.

    Keep up the good work.

  5. Glad to see you guys finally got some pictures done. Now that you’ve got the earth covered, what about other planets? I hear places like Mars have high resolution imagery.

  6. Why do I sense a Podcast union coming on?

  7. Great job, I enjoy both of your blogs!
