Google Wants to Hear Your Google Earth Story

Google is asking for people to submit their unique and interesting stories about innovative Google Earth applications. In their post at the LatLong blog they talk about a landscape architect company which used Google Earth’s 3D terrain to generate a sculpture model of the Yosemite Valley for a scenic overlook. Given the large community of innovative Google Earth applications written about at GEB, Google asked me to make sure GEB readers were aware of their form for people to submit unique stories. For some people/organizations, this might be a great opportunity to get some wider exposure if Google ends up choosing their story for a case study or Google blog post!

  1. You list Mt. St. Helens as the only active volcano in the continental United States. Alaska has several active volcanoes. Alaska is in the United States. Alaska is on the North American continent. It is not in the contiguous or lower 48 states, but definitely on the continent. Trying for years to get you to correct this, but I imagine this email will go into the same black hole the others have.
