Happy Earth Day! Here’s a quick list of some relevant sites that have integrated Microsoft Virtual Earth into their applications to help conserve Earth.

– Los Angeles County announced a “Solar Map” project, which leverages Virtual Earth to allow homeowners and businesses to go online to determine if their properties are good candidates for solar power.
– MRT launched a new search engine called “SciScope” which is focused exclusively on rich environmental information presented on a Microsoft Virtual Earth map. SciScope has data from over 9.5 million sensors and 1.7 million locations that visualize information on a Virtual Earth map while leveraging SQL Server 2008 to handle the queries.
