NASA & Google Earth Color Earth With Near Real Time Information
Garett Rogers summarizes a post at the Google Earth Blog explaining that Google and NASA now have added more KMLs (a file format used to display geographic data in an Earth browser) to Google Earth. The new files provide almost real-time information including:
- Sea Surface Temperature [KML File]
- Chlorophyll Concentration [KML File]
- Cloud Fraction [KML File]
- Snow Cover [KML File]
