How Google Earth Is Changing Science

How Google Earth Is Changing Science, By Manfred Dworschak ( SPIEGEL Magazine) This article comes from a German magazine about how the impact of Google with Google Earth and Maps have become a dominant force in the mapping world and will forever change the landscape of GIS and Cartography.

Here's one quote: "Biologists, epidemiologists and disaster control experts are discovering Google Earth as a powerful tool in their work. The success of the digital globe has reawakened interest in computer mapping models."

The rest is a very detailed article on the importance and growth of Google Earth, which is free to download and if nothing else is just a hoot to play with.
