An unprecedented International Digital Earth 3D Visualization contest has been launched, under sponsorship of Google, NASA, ESRI, and other technology leaders. This international contest will seek to discover the best examples of visualizing the challenging issues involved in bridging science to public understanding, policy, and action.
