Space: The Final Frontier In The Race To Map The Earth

October 12, 2009

The Google Lat Long blog announced today the launch of their partner DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-2 (WV2) satellite.

DigitalGlobe’s successful launch of WV2 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California is another important step forward in Google’s making more high resolution, accurate, current imagery available to through its Google Earth and Google Maps products.

If using rockets and satellites to do get a job done aren’t considered a competitive advantage – I don’t know what is.

Is not space the final frontier in the race to map the Earth?
