The University of Michigan is continuing their recent advocacy efforts by hosting an event focused on science applications of Google Earth. The conference,which will take place on Wednesday, April 22nd (Earth Day!) in Ann Arbor, will feature a series of presentations on active efforts in the natural resource sciences that use Google Earth and KML to visualize and communicate their work.

Additionally, two of the recent KML in Research contest winners that have Michigan ties will be on hand to discuss their work.

Our hope is that efforts like this will continue to spawn new work and new resources. Go Blue!
