In the US, we celebrate all the contributions that Geologists make to our society on September 20th. Well, I don’t know that the entire US celebrates, but by God, they should! The Association of Engineering Geologists, which I have been a member of off and on, looks at it a different way. They note that Geologist’s Day is a day when geologists should do something extra in service of their profession, to advocate for geoscience and geologists. I certainly appreciate all of the things that geologists do in our society and agree that this is a day worth celebrating! And on the first Sunday in April, we can celebrate again with the Russian holiday!
Google Earth is a software application that uses satellite and aerial photo imagery, terrain, maps, 3D buildings and Google Search data to view information in our world in two and three dimensions in real time. Iâ€™m curious how other geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists are using Google Earth in their practice. Read on for some GE related resources Iâ€™ve found useful or interesting, and then post a comment on how you use Google Earth in your practice and for fun! (Logo copyright Google Inc.)
