Urban Tick: Google Earth as a Visualisation Engine and the Trails of Ants

Urban Tick over at urbantick.blogspot.com is becoming a ‘must read’ we know we are slightly biased as it comes out of the same lab as us here at digital urban, but the work is really starting to look interesting. Two posts grab our attention, firstly the Urban Diary Week 3 with two movies recorded in Google Earth with the satelitte view turned off – this is interesting as its using Google Earth purely as a visualisation engine. Secondly, a post on Ant Trails and couple of great movies on visualising their paths.

We would normally embed the movies in a post here but for this one we suggest heading over to Urban Tick and taking a look.
