Business 2.0’s Future Boy has a very interesting column about Google’s possible plans for Google Earth. The company is moving toward letting users design and create objects on its virtual Earthscape using simple 3-D modeling software.
These can be representations of real objects (think real estate sales) or any object of a user’s imagination. This has some quirky and fun possibilities, but could also have some practical local applications.
A good read on a Friday morning. Enjoy.
