Kite Aerial Photography in Google Earth

You may recall that our friend Frank Taylor of Google Earth Blog has been sailing around the world. Recently he made headlines because his kite aerial photography of Manihi atoll in French Polynesia, taken last May, has been added to Google Earth. CNet, Gizmodo. Not, apparently, the first time this has happened: he’s taking such pictures along the way. I wonder if this could happen more often. Lord knows there are plenty of places that don’t have high resolution imagery in Google Earth (my own town, for example).
