The Computers & Geosciences journal recently announced a call for papers (8 to 12 pages) for a special issue on Virtual Globes in Science. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed. From the above announcement:
"Online tools, such as versatile Web portals and Virtual Globes, are changing the way in which scientists and professionals store, access and view their data. In particular, Virtual Globes such as Google Earth (GE), NASA World Wind and Microsoft's Virtual Earth are providing an interactive three-dimensional virtual environment that enables Earth Scientists to conduct their research in a more natural and intuitive way than ever before."
