4.0 out of 5 stars go beyond Google Earth 28 Jun 2008
By W Boudville - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Perhaps you have been a fascinated user of Google Earth. Or similar products made available on the web by competitors. The subject of this book is the future of geography. Involving massive databases and a high level of user interactivity.

The book shows what is now being done by various research and industrial groups, to understand and use such geo-linked data. Accompanied by numerous diagrams, especially in colour. These convey the richness of the information, and take advantage of the human hardwired ability to use the eye to analyse scads of data.

Plus, for those pondering starting a company that amasses or, more likely, use such information, you may get inspiration.
