After I handed in my MSc thesis in August, Google invited me to San Francisco to present my work. Yesterday, I gave a tech talk at Googleplex about the Thematic Mapping Engine (now open-source) and how KML and Google Earth could be improved to better support popular thematic mapping techniques. My slides are available on SlideShare.
My talk was filmed and will probably appear online. I was a bit nervous during the presentation, so its not my best performance
Anyway, I really enjoyed the discussions with the geo developers, the lunch talks, and the guided tour around Googleplex. Thanks Google!
