Hi Ruth,

There are *plenty* of blogs on this subject (a generally well-regarded example being Ogle Earth - http://www.ogleearth.com/), but two publications that might be of use to you are: 

L. Ullmann and Y. Gorokhovich: 'Google Earth and some practical applications for the field of archaeology', CSA Newsletter Vol. XVIII, No. 3 (2006), published online: http://csanet.org/newsletter/winter06/nlw0604.html

M. F. Goodchild: 'What does Google Earth mean for the Social Sciences?', in M. Dodge, M. MacDerby and M. Turner (eds.) 2008: Geographic Visualization. John Wiley & Sons: 11-23. 

By way of a background discussion of the role of Google Earth in scholarship more generally you mind find...

A. Scharl: 'Towards the Geospatial Web: Media platforms for managing geotagged knowledge repositories', in A. Scharl and K. Tochtermann (eds.) 2007: The Geospatial Web: How geobrowsers, social software and the Web 2.0 are shaping the network society. Springer: 3-14.

...useful. 

Good luck, and I would be interested in any conclusions you come to on this subject.

        Subject: scholarship about google earth?

Dear Humanist Colleagues,

I am looking for references to scholarship about Google Earth.  I am 
particularly interested in approaches that are friendly but also measured 
and critical.  I would prefer references to articles in peer-reviewed 
journals over links to blog posts (though I'll take those too).  Articles 
that reference GE applications for historical studies would be nice, but 
that's not essential.  If this query results in an extensive bibliography, 
I will collate it and re-post it to the list.

Many thanks in advance, and apologies for cross-posting.

Ruth Mostern
