If you haven’t already, you should check out the WebGL Globe, an open platform for visualizing geographic data.  This  Chrome Experiment is created by the Google Data Arts Team and contains several interesting Google Earth views of different types of data.  The team encourages you to copy the code, add your own data, and create your own map.  Try it out, or at least checkout other globes that have been shared.  I was unconsciously spinning around the Google Search by Volume Globe for about 20 minutes before deciding to add this as a post.   Reminded me of that feeling you get while watching a documentary in an IMAX theater.  ”The world is so vast, and I am so small!”
