Google Earth Hero Award, 2009: The revolutionizing Google’s Geo Mapping capabilities were used to track every kilometer of the initial Project Kaisei voyage using an android application called ‘my tracks’. This groundbreaking program allowed the Kaisei’s location to be tracked automatically via GPS and uploaded to a Google My Map. This enabled individuals around the world to see in real time the problem of marine debris /ocean trash. A result of this collaboration led to Project Kaisei winning the “Google Earth Hero Award in 2009″.
