This Google+ Hangout was part of the Education On Air conference on May 2, 2012.
In this session we will discuss our use of Google Earth as an educational tool, with a focus on data visualization. Students from around the world are using Google Earth in a new way to display air pollution data that they collected at their schools.
As a participant in the GO3 Project, students set up air pollution monitoring instruments at their schools. Their data is automatically uploaded every 15 minutes for display in a Google Earth overlay. Anyone with an internet connection can now see worldwide air pollution measurements displayed in one database, something that the students are pioneering.
