Since its introduction in 2007, we’ve talked quite a bit about Google Earth Outreach. They work hard to help nonprofits and others to “visualize their cause and tell their story” by using technologies such as Google Earth and Google Maps. They build great visualizations such as this EPA data of the gulf oil spill and they often give out grants to help organizations to get their ideas off the ground.
As a way to highlight some of the work that they’ve done over the years, DiscoveryNews has built a great photo gallery showing some of the things they accomplished. Not only can you see the great work done in Google Earth, but each image has a very detailed caption to explain what was accomplished in each slide.
I encourage you to view the entire slideshow to see highlights from the Outreach team, then visit the Google Earth Outreach website to learn more.
