I wanted to give props to my colleague Ron Hess who recently announced the release of a new application that helps non-profits produce maps of their partners, donors or any other relevant party. The application, produced by a collabration between the Salesforce.com Foundation and Google Earth Outreach, utilizes the new Google Earth browser plugin to generate a rich map based on data held within the non-profit's Salesforce CRM instance. This is a cool use of the technology, but also even cooler because it will help some great organizations do much good in the world.
If you know of any organization who could benefit from this, you can direct them here to access the application. If they don't hear about it through you, hopefully they'll see it on TechCrunch who recently picked up the story.
