The day Google Earth first came out, I downloaded it and had an amazing, amazing day roaming the Himalayas and vast expanses of Russia. It was a mind blowing experience. I was like wow.

Google Earth: A House Is A House Is A House

I checked out my homevillage in Nepal. And my hometown not far away from there. I could see my houses. It was dazzling.

I think you could go on a serious world tour through Google Earth and Google Maps Street View, no?

I have been everywhere in America, and I want to have been all over the world. It is no coincidence I have a global business in mind. But right now, and for a few years, I am in the New York City phase of my life. This is my time to get to really know the city, all its neighborhoods, and to get the company up and running. And in this phase my global travels will have to be through Google Earth. That is before the company takes me to the spans of the globe.

Thank you Google Earth. Thank you Google Street View.

Geography is a lot of data.

Here, go do some touring. I just visited one city.

Google Earth Builder could provide a cloud-based alternative to many of the GIS software packages already on the market. The new package, which will officially launch this summer, will be priced "competitively" with similar software offerings already on the market. ..... Not only will companies be able to store massive amounts of data ("terabytes of imagery," in Google's words), but they'll have access to the computational power of Google's cloud as well.
