New Book Covering Google Earth

This is the first book covering Google Earth I've seen announced (not yet available, but you can pre-order it at Amazon). The book is titled "Hacking Google Maps and Google Earth" by Martin C. Brown at Extreme Tech. From the description I don't think it has a lot of real new stuff on "hacking" Google Earth, most of the focus in the description seems to be focused on Google Maps. However, the listing says the book is 500 pages, so maybe there is more to it. Perhaps a listing of some of the best Google Earth KML files, with screenshots? Or, perhaps he covers how to use your GPS, do image overlays of your own satellite photos or weather radar images, or write your own KML and network links?

I expect this will be just the first of several new books we'll hear about covering Google Earth in the next few months. I'm curious how many of my readers here would be interested in a book about Google Earth?

    I've been hoping to see a book about Google Earth for some time now

    Absolutely! I was hoping someone would take that on.

    Just came across this site while searching around.

    That's my book! :)

    Yes, there will be some Google Earth stuff in it. There's a combination of using the Google Maps API, creating Google Maps applications (adding overlays, statistical information and using GoogleMaps as the source for data), as well as looking at the Google Earth application and how to extend its content and information.

    There will also be backup, followup and code examples at http://maps.mcslp.com. There;s nothing there yet (well, not that I've publicized yet anyway!).
