Do you want to work on a product that allows government organizations and businesses to host their own Google Earth globe? Open Google Earth Enterprise (Open GEE) allows organizations and businesses to take advantage of the same publicly available Google Earth capabilities, behind the firewall, in an offline/disconnected environment, or in low bandwidth areas. Joining the Thermopylae team, you’ll be helping to improve and promote Google Earth Enterprise as open source. After almost two years of maintenance updates, Google and Thermopylae have worked together to open-source Google Earth Enterprise and its components Fusion, Server, and Portable Server. Thermopylae is now leading the effort to take Open GEE to the next level for the GIS community. Check us out at:
