While you have been testing...

I have been playing some more with google earth. My work at the Norwegian Hydrographic Service makes me a privileged person: this is as close as I can get to my childhood dream of becoming an astronaut (apart from diving of course). Modern technology makes it possible to make amazingly detailed images of the seafloor. Here is an example of Kongsfjorden, Spitsbergen. If you want play around with it yourself you can download the KML here. (tip: switch off "Water surface", you can find it under "View").

The Beagle goes Beta

Finally we have a presentable version we can use to test. We'll use the first chapter of the "Voyage of the Beagle" by Darwin. Click here to participate and download the KML. Mail your comments here.
Thanks for testing :-)
