Google Earth and Web 2.0 opportunities CLIMATE-SCOPE – Use geographic environment to understand climate change dynamics – Easy & Powerful visual tool – Integrate climatic information layers with “local observations” uploaded by teachers and students – Disseminate schools’ activities using geographic environment – Contents/data sharing to produce “volunteered geographic information” (Goodchild 2007)
  8. 8. CLIMATE-SCOPE stones Informative global /regional layering + Citizen Intellingent Placemarking + Scientific authoring & Support directly inside the view + Aggregative Mashup-ing from other source thanks web 2.0 (i.e GeoRSS, Geo feed)
