Google Earth for classical music?


Google Earth is the water cooler killer app. The image above is from RAMline which uses Topic Maps software to create a unique multi-dimensional index of music and musicians linked to local digitized archives and other online resources, such as manuscript sources and published editions, live performances and recordings, musical criticism and comment. Could this be classical music's killer app?
