Google Earth Builder Launches Into the GeoCloud

Google makes its foray into the GeoCloud with Earth Builder.  From Google’s LatLong blog:

Google Earth Builder is an Enterprise mapping platform powered by Google’s cloud technology. We’ve built Google Earth Builder with the idea that any organization with their own mapping data – be it terabytes of imagery or just a few basemap layers – should be able to upload and manage that data in the cloud.

Joe Francica of Directions Magazine has an interview with Dylan Lorimar, Google Earth’s product manager about the product: Google Earth Builder Launched: Cloud Platform for Geospatial Data Storage and Processing.
