Google Earth Enterprise Goes 2D

ZDNet has a story about a new capability for Google Earth Enterprise customers. You can now view GIS data from your Enterprise server on a Google Maps API client. This means you can output important GIS visualizations in the robust 2D Google Maps browser client or use the Google Earth Enterprise client for 3D views. All of this can be done from behind a firewall for internal-only data visualizations. Pricing for Google Earth Enterprise starts at $20,000 and includes the new 2D viewing capability.
Thanks to a tip from Mike Pegg (of GoogleMapsMania) on this story. I’m about to leave the marina on my sailing trip, so this is my last chance to use the Internet until I run into another WiFI connection.
