Hi, I am an Google Earth geek and especially a Google Earth tour geek.  I work for a Uni in the UK where I teach and support teaching.  I've been blogging about Google Earth for over 5 years now.  If you're a teacher, I have an open, online course I designed especially for teachers that goes into Google Earth tours in more depth.

Following a G+ conversation with Ed Parsons I've jotted down some thoughts on pros and cons of animated maps on my blog.

This is a neat introduction to marker clustering by Mano Marks.  However, my problem with clustering is that although it may be effective to prevent overloading a browser, it may be confusing to the user.  This post (http://webmapdesign.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/usability-problems-with-zeros-on.html) is on the zero problem and links back to other thoughts on clustering.

I like the  animation capacity of Symbols in Google Maps (http://googlegeodevelopers.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/powerful-data-visualization-with.html just announced at Google IO) .  Is it easy to dynamically control the zoom and pan in GMaps as in Google Earth tours?

I like this animated talk about how science is moving from tree networks to those with far more interconnections.

Having been using Prezi a lot recently I also note that the pictures are:
- all at one angle, no rotating was used
- zooms and pans are all subtle, no whizzing around madly
- its all at one 'scale', no making things really small compared with other elements. This means you can visually scan the whole image (visible at the end of the talk) easily.

Although most of us can't draw this well, I think these are best practices we would all be well to adopt when using prezi
