Google Earth tramples on traditional map publishers

Google have just announced that new partners will directly overlay Google Earth maps with video, photo and blog content.

Content on places, such as the Great Pyramids, will feature 3-5 minute clips of existing Discovery Network nature and travel channel content, chimp info from the Jane Goodall Institute (hey, that could come in hany one day - right?), and the US National Park Service has supplied information on over 10,000 trails at 58 parks (Yippee).

And its just the beginning - oh and the end for traditional map publishers - sorry.
