You can see the final image thanks to the local TV station. It’s just not that impressive, sadly. Still, maybe its the thought that counts?

The city is gathered to sent its message “Longmont Loves Google” via an image a DigitalGlobe satellite will capture on Friday. The hope is the image will help Google pick the city for its infrastructure give away. The message will be delivered by people in red, and cars decked out in many colors.

The paper that hosted the original article now offers an editorial: “Editorial: Does it matter who’s heard of Queensbury?”

Councilman John Strough could not find Queensbury, NY identified on a Google map. That seems to be the impetus for town officials to create more awareness of the town via a new $25,000 marketing effort. It will be funded by county Occupancy tax monies.

I do hope the town is aware that they can use the “report a problem” link on Google Maps to let the company know it wants to be on the map.

Greater Greater Washington’s Geoff Hatchard was asked to remove its map of DC Water. In the end it did not, but fuzzed up the one it had posted.

This morning, I received notice from Alan Heymann, the Public Affairs Director of DC Water, that the EPA contacted DC Water to let them know they believe the map is “sensitive information” and should not have been shared.

This is the article that had the original high res map.
