From Treehugger: At the UN Rio+20 conference this week, Google revealed their first cultural map for Google Earth. The result of a five-year project with Brazil’s Surui tribe, the map consists of a collection of pictures, videos and 3-D visualizations mapping the cultural history and biodiversity of the 600,000-acre Surui territory. The map is part of a larger project with the Surui people to document and preserve their forests and culture.
