Google Earth offers exciting new ways to visualize spatial data.  3D buildings make the scenes look "real" so that navigating the scene is similar to driving through actual streets.  A large challenge to the new technology, however, is to incorporate the wisdom of the past in such a way that new directions of inquiry or new ways to communicate are uncovered.  Selected articles in this issue of Solstice focus on that idea and build on some similar efforts in earlier issues of Solstice.
