Back to Earth – Africa

goog_earth_africaCentral African Republic in Google EarthWhile we are on earth, there are things we should not forget about.  (Before we soar into space that is.)  GEB (Google Earth Blog), pointed out this Central African Republic KMZ, created by Humanitarian and Development Partners in CAR.  Dozens of layers provide information about this country, not far from Darfur. This is related to the Google Earth Outreach program announced in June.

These two images give an idea of the visual impact. 1) Africa is enormous, looks like half the earth here, with CAR outlined like a heart in its center, and bangui2) zoom in to the town of Bangui and it is just a village, with coffee shops, a Chinese restaurant, a football stadium, university, and government buildings, along a great winding river. So much to be learned here!
