An Introduction to Using Google Earth for Political Advocacy

October 17th, 2007

The San Francisco NetSqared group got a great overview of Google Earth’s potential for online advocacy communications on October 9th, courtesy of Google Earth project manager Steve Miller.

You’re not going to walk away from either article ready to make your own maps, but you’ll get to see some of the potential of this great tool and you’ll leave armed with examples and links to how-tos that’ll get you started. Plus, either article is a good resource for that most difficult of lobbying efforts — the one within your own organization.
