It can't be a coincidence that New Scientist speaks of a new addition to Google Earth called "iEarth" that lets you choose a spot anywhere on the planet to get interesting measurements. This product is set to be available to the public in April according to them.
Choosing a spot on the planet's surface will prompt iEarth to display ground-based measurements for that location, as well as data relating to the atmosphere and space above it.
NASA and Google to present agreement today
