Mapping the Inauguration: A Roundup
New Google Earth imagery for Washington, D.C. finally de-pixellates the U.S. Naval Observatory; censored aerial imagery is being replaced by satellite imagery, Stefan notes: “I suspect that the aerial imagery was indeed censored by U.S. authorities before being released to the public (as is done by the Netherlands, among others), but that Google then pasted in uncensored satellite imagery (even if older and/or grainier) in those places where otherwise we’d have seen ugly pixels and then accusations of Google cowing to government censorship demands.”
USA Today has an interesting-looking interactive inauguration map (via Infonaut). Scott Lee has put together a georeferenced parade map (PDF) at AcrobatUsers.com’s geospatial and mapping gallery (via AnyGeo and GeoPDF).
