This heart-shaped island in the Adriatic became a hit on Google Earth for Valentine's Day. The uninhabited island is only 130,000 square yards and is called Galesnjak.

How To Create Shared Collaborative Google Maps - Flock More than ever, the internet has enabled us to work in global and distributed teams. Whether as part of our jobs, voluntary ventures, or joint blogs, working with people around the world has become part of life for many of us.

During the UN Climate Change Conference held in Copenhagen this week, Google unveiled an advanced Google Earth prototype that allows satellite imagery to show and measure the progression of deforestation in regions around the world. Google teamed up with software experts Greg Asner, from Carnegie Institution for Science, and Carlos Souza, from Imazon (both institutions with forest data programs used in Latin America) and created a “cloud-based computing” technology that gathers all satellite imagery data for a region and displays them in a user-friendly format. Google offers before and after stills of the technology on their blog: BEFORE: Deforestation in Rondonia, Brazil (1975-2001) using satellite imagery AFTER: Deforestation in Mato Grosso, Brazil (Augustin 2009-September 2009) using SAD technology created by Carolos Souza.
