Quote of the Month: Eric Schmidt

“I do want to emphasize that we've seen an explosion in the use of Google Maps and Google Earth for education. The earth is a special place. It is our home and it's why we're all here. And the ability to see what's really going on the earth, the good stuff and the bad stuff, at the level that you can, is phenomenal.” –Eric Schmidt, Brainy Quotes

Today’s quote comes from the executive chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt. In an interview, he attempted to relay the passion and mystique behind the use of all maps, and why map obsession continues to become more popular. Given the vast amounts of geographical diversity throughout all of the corners of the globe, it remains fascinating that so much of the world can now be seen through a simple click of the mouse or a search query in an app.

After cartographers and explorers spent years mapping out the earth for us in paper form, we now have digitalized maps that utilize the most advanced technology and features to give us more pinpointed results of where places are. Businesses can also use Google Maps and Google Earth to market their business through local search optimization. The sky is the limit!
