New Google Earth Layer Shows Global Deforestation



We’ve already alerted readers to the awesome new features available on Google Earth’s Outreach back in April.

A live hectare ticker and pop-up profiles are also included for placemarked countries. With the other new features of Google Earth Outreach covering everything from dams to endangered species to the South China Sea project, what could be next? Via ::Mongobay
