Googlers at Tactical Operations Center (TOC) of Camp Roberts event, near Paso Robles in central California, organised to collaborate on disaster relief, humanitarian aid, and development “spooled up an 8-core Google Earth Enterprise Server to process satellite imagery provided by National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). The server was used to process “1m resolution GeoEye IKONOS” scenes over Jalalabad, Afghanistan – with Google Earth Fusion to create a 3D globe and set of Mercator map tiles. And published the tiles to Portable Earth Server running in an Ubuntu Virtual Machine to be used as a base imagery layer for mashups by other applications including Sahana, Development Seed, FortiusOne, Open Street Map, and InSTEDD.”
