Google Supports Geography Awareness Week

The new layers which came out on Sunday were released for Geographic Awareness Week. Here's the summary from the page at Google for Educators:

Google and My Wonderful World, a National Geographic-led campaign for geographic literacy, have teamed up to use Google Earth as an educational tool for spreading awareness about people, places and diversity of our wonderful planet. Since 1987, National Geographic and other organizations have celebrated "geography awareness" during the third week of November, promoting the importance of geography in the U.S. and Canada. Each year, the focus is on a different area of the world. This year, it's Africa.

So, now we know why there were a number of new layers focused on Africa. Note, there is also a geography quiz about Africa available from My Wonderful World Blog here.
