While we’re on the subject of Google Map and Google Earth overlays, “Kathryn Cramer”: and her friends have been doing some interesting and important work on importing satellite data as overlays, and using this as a means to disseminate information about, and focus attention, on natural disasters. This information can be used to discover hill carvings of knights and dragons; but it can also (and this is Kathryn’s main point) bring home what’s happening in disaster zones such as the earthquake region in Pakistan.

Slightly off topic, but I saw Jarmusch’s Broken Flowers yesterday and was struck by the huge amount of Mapquest product placement.
