French Presidential Election Results in Google Earth - May 6th

French Presidential Election Results in Google EarthLast night, Google quickly updated the French Election results layer. To turn on the layer, you need to select "View->All Layers" in the Layers window pane menu. Then you will see the "French Presidential Election 07" - turn that on. The layer now shows the election data for the whole country on who voted for Sarkozky verses Royal broken down by department and even down to the town level from May 6th. The placemarks show who voted for which candidate, and provide more detailed statistics. Zoom in and tilt your view for more details - it may take a few seconds to load individual town results - the towns actually show the results as 3D "columns" where the heights indicate number of voters.

It is a good sign that Google is taking steps to update data for more timely geospatial related news like this. Maybe we will see more examples of this in the future.
