I’ve wondered about different kinds of applications (such as this) for Google Maps and Google Earth, but now it’s official: Google Earth has teamed up with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum to do a layered map project called “Crisis in Darfur”. Here, Google Earth users can zoom in and see evidence of the monstrous and growing genocide in the region, which the Sudanese government denies. Hey, can we get one of these for Iraq?
