Google joins with Holocaust Museum to track genocide in Darfur





Can you Google your way to a more compassionate planet?

Google Earth hopes its highly detailed, 3-D satellite images will aid the process in a new effort to utilize the full social and educational potential of its images, which have mostly been used by individuals for personal enjoyment, such as checking out their houses, birth places, or national and international landmarks.

The company is now pairing with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum to highlight the crisis in Darfur in graphic detail online, by using Google Earth maps to allow users to zoom in on 1,600 villages destroyed in this conflict, and see the devastation up close.
