What an amazing invention Google Earth is. It is unprecedented how lucky all people are today to have access to these images and geographic locations knit together and made available for free.
One of the many beauties of Google Earth is that it was not put together for wars, spying, or tracking hurricanes ~ even if many of these images may have been originally gathered for these reasons. In Google Earth these maps and images remind us we are all here together in one place along with everything, man made or not, that happens here.
– zoom in, fly down, see how far away an area is, go visit, discover how people express themselves there. See bigger.
