Photographic Views on Google Earth


As I have mentioned in the past, part of my work entails handling some wonderful photographs. One collection I processed last year was the Photographic Views of the United States, comprised of photographs from locations across the continental U.S., Hawaii and Alaska. While its layout is intuitively alphabetized by state, Matt Knutzen, from the Map Division decided to provide an alternative visual interface, connecting the images with their locations on a map of the United States. To view open the attachment below in Google Earth. Pretty cool, huh? We’re hoping this is just the beginning of our collaboration. I’ll write again about any new ideas or developments.
