Google rewards KML use in research with prizes!

Google LatLong: Create cool KML, win cool prizes

Neat! Just found out about this contest here. Sadly, I think I dun have enough species data here to present anything nice. Anyone has data they wish to display on Google Earth? Offering my skills for a chance at the contest!

The rules of the contest kinda skipped Singapore for one of the countries eligible for the contest although in their demo use page they showed a Singapore Dengue distribution map. I hope they recitfy this. Although I hope to join not for the prizes

the excerpt of the rules is here
