Few things give this extreme trout cat a reason to salivate more than a Google Earth "upgrade".
Google wants more views of the planet for the new historical imagery feature in Google Earth 5, which lets people see earlier views of a particular area, not just the present. The company established an Imagery Partner Program through which organizations can supply their data.
But wait there's more! Yahoo! (remember Yahoo!) has been building a resource and that seems to be putting it lightly.
Yahoo doesn't share quite the degree of obsession as Google, but it's working hard on geography too. On Wednesday, Yahoo announced that it has 100 million geotagged photos on Flickr, its image-sharing site. Geotagged photos have map coordinates built in, letting people find photos of a particular region or explore their own archive geographically.
Do the trout have a chance?
