HOME - featured movie locations We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth's climate. The stakes are high for us and our children.

The system detects Santa Claus lifting off from the North Pole visiting several countries around the world and delivering the presents. This year Google Earth is used to track Santa in 3D. The "NORAD Santa Cams" take photos of Santa and his reindeer. On December 1st the journey starts and each day will bring a "new exciting activity for children of all ages". Live Earth concerts on 07.07.07 "Live Earth" is one of the largest global events in history. Inspired by "Live Aid", former US vice-president Al Gore initiated a worldwide series of Pop/Rock concerts to point to the danger of global warming. About 150 musicians want to reach more than 2 billion people on all continents (even on Antarctica). This map shows you all venues of the event.

Latest Imagery updates in Google Earth This KML, released by Google, shows the latest imagery updates in Google Earth/Maps. New imagery gets imported about two times a month and all updated areas are highlighted with red outlines. Tutorial: KML creation with other applications Besides the creation tool of GLOTTER you can also use third-party-tools within Google Maps, Google Earth or Google Spreadsheets to create, import and edit KML. When you have created your KML you can upload it to a new GLOTTER entry. When you have finished creating your KML you can upload the file to a new entry and promote it on GLOTTER! BTW: If this tutorial is too complicated for you you can still use GLOTTER's easy Marker creation tool ;-) USGS earthquakes KML file KML file from United States Geological Survey’s (USGS) Earthquake Hazards Program: Real-time earthquakes and plate boundaries in the past seven days.
