This is simply amazing. Unfortunately I am working (supposed to work) right now, but as soon as I can log in, I have to get there.

I wonder if it could be done for smaller areas, like countries or like the EU, for instance. One vision would be to have several specialised maps/"slices" and get them linked.

A very nice thing for educators in SL.
Not to mention next time someone snicker that SL is just for cybering, point them in this direction.

Why oh why don't SLers DIGG things? If more did, we could DIGG this incredible story right onto the front page of major newspapers and magazines all over the world. This is NEWS peeps. Get DIGGING! It's easy, it's cool and it's IMPORTANT. Look here: http://digg.com/

Something like this was done:

Google Earth in Second Life: GeoGlobe -- http://www.gearthblog.com/blog/archives/2007/03/google_earth_in_seco.html

and

GeoGlobe: GeoRSS and KML meet Second Life

Hi TBird,

Did you visit Areumdeuli and examine it. The only comparison between what you've referenced and Zora's work is that they feature representations of the Earth.

This really is something different than what those other builds were doing.
