Heroes of Google Earth

We are thrilled by the fact that hundreds of millions of people around the world use Google Earth to discover, explore, and learn. But perhaps we're even more proud of the fact that many people have used Google Earth as a tool to help them change the world; ordinary people achieving extraordinary goals with the help of Google Earth.

Google Earth heroes salutes these individuals and shares these wonderful stories in the hopes that they will inspire even more initiatives to help make the world a better place. To hear more of these stories, visit the Google Earth Outreach Site.
