Wave - Communicate and collaborate in real time As we announced in August 2010, we are not continuing active development of Google Wave as a stand-alone product. Google Wave will be shut down in April 2012. This page details the implication of the turn down process for Google Wave. Stage 1: Google Wave is read-only -- January 31, 2012 In this stage, you will no longer be able to create or edit waves. Geo APIs Summer Learning Series: High Performance KML for Maps and Earth The Keyhole Markup Language (KML) is an open standard for geographic data presentation. There are over one billion KML files on the web, and yet the vast majority of these files are points on a map. In High Performance KML for Maps and Earth, Sean Askay and I covered advanced techniques for using KML in Google Earth and the Earth API, as well as introduced other Google platforms that support KML.
Documenting the American South: Open DocSouth What is DocSouth Data? Doc South Data provides access to some of the Documenting The American South collections in formats that work well with common text mining and data analysis tools. Documenting the American South is one of the longest running digital publishing initiatives at the University of North Carolina. It was designed to give researchers digital access to some of the library’s unique collections in the form of high quality page scans as well as structured, corrected and machine readable text. Doc South Data is an extension of this original goal and has been designed for researchers who want to use emerging technology to look for patterns across entire texts or compare patterns found in multiple texts. We have made it easy to use tools such as Voyant to conduct simple word counts and frequency visualizations (such as word clouds) or to use other tools to perform more complex processes such as topic modeling, named-entity recognition or sentiment analysis.
Google Lit Trips for Young Readers Where in the world will our youngest readers travel as they discover the world of books!

Slideshow: Top 15 Google Apps ForBusiness (click image for larger view and for full slideshow) SAP has teamed up with Google to enable its customers to mashup data with the search giant's mapping capabilities so they can visually report on business conditions such as sales by territory, loan risk by region, or defaults by neighborhood. SAP and Google have already collaborated to enable customers to plot data on Google Maps within the SAP Streamwork, BusinessObjects Explorer, and Crystal Reports interfaces. But those mashups use the publically available Google Maps application programming interfaces (APIs).

Geo APIs Summer Learning Series: GIS with Google Earth and Google Maps This session at Google I/O demonstrated how developers can take advantage of new and little known GIS capabilities in all of our geo services. We started out showing some of the GIS capabilities in Google Maps API, which amongst other features, lets you calculate distances and angles and overlay map tiles in arbitrary projections. Moving onto some new and upcoming products, we showed off some of the capabilities of Google Earth Builder, a new platform to manage and publish large amounts of raster and vector GIS data. In the world of data visualization, previous sessions had showed off new styling features for Fusion Tables. In this session, we showed how you can enable spatial queries on your data, displaying maps and statistics for the closest set of features to a location, or all features within an arbitrary radius.
40 more maps that explain the world Maps seemed to be everywhere in 2013, a trend I like to think we encouraged along with August's 40 maps that explain the world. Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to. You might consider this, then, a collection of maps meant to inspire your inner map nerd. I've searched far and wide for maps that can reveal and surprise and inform in ways that the daily headlines might not, with a careful eye for sourcing and detail.
