Picture This: NOAA, Google Join Forces to Visualize Scientific Data:
[Via NOAA News Releases]

NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research and Google have signed a cooperative research and development agreement outlining how they will work together to create state-of-the-art visualizations of scientific data to illustrate how our planet works.


This could be really useful and fun, much like what Google Earth has accomplished. Google has all sorts of resources and expertise with presentation of data. It can do some things that NOAA can just not afford to do.

This is a collaboration to keep an eye on.
