Google took its new multi-screened Liquid Galaxy viewing platform to Copenhagen for the COP15 climate summit. Liquid Galaxy, which is a 20% project from Google engineer Jason Holt and others, is basically a panoramic version of Google Earth that almost completely surrounds viewers in monitors.
Using the same data and satellite imagery as regular old Google Earth, but with more and larger monitors, Liquid Galaxy has tremendous potential for representing all kinds of spatial data and ecological processes and systems anywhere on Earth. This short demo shows how it can be used to monitor glaciers and deforestation, for example.
