Making this known to the Geo Geeks Community as its a big announcement from Google related to Google Earth Enterprise!
First Post I've made in awhile but this one is worth it. Google is Open-Sourcing Google Earth Enterprise!! Can't wait to see the potential spin-offs and development projects around the commercial GIS industry from this. #GoogleEarth   #GoogleEarthEnterprise   #Geo   #GIS

We published another list of open and free data to take advantage of. Check it out and if you know of any more feel free to comment so we can add it to our next iteration.

New +USGS maps might make +Harold Asmis happy.  New map shows earthquake risk including both natural and induced.  O-Klahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plain, is now a hot spot on the map.

Just a friendly reminder that you can easily download and analyze your own location history in Google Maps by going to https://www.google.com/maps/timeline. Here is an example of what I did by putting some data from Google Maps of a road trip I went on in 2012.

The only downside is you can only download one day at a time. You used to be able to download a range of data when it was once known as Latitude. To work around this I downloaded this road trip which was 4 weeks long day by day as KML and then uploaded it into Google FusionTables. Importing the files into FusionTables was very easy as each file was formatted the same way.
