Protesters Using Digital Mapping Tools

Protestors use Google Maps to track police and Godzilla

The protests against tuition hikes in London today are leveraging Google Maps to track official response (and Godzilla, apparently).  I’m not a fan of Google Maps or the entire Google Geo Ecosystem, but the ability to quickly create and update spatial data is definitely one benefit of its user-oriented design.

And, of course, a bit of the legend (I’m sure the helicopters and Godzilla are self-explanatory).
