Doing GIS Research Until the Cows Come Home

An interesting post on Google's Lat Long Blog.

While doing research on Google Earth, "zoologists observed the grazing tendencies of thousands of cattle from hundreds of different herds around the world and concluded that the vast majority of these animals position themselves according to our planet's magnetic poles, facing almost due north or south.

The credited researchers are:

- Sabine Begall
- Jaroslav Červený
- Julia Neef
- Oldřich Vojtčch
- Hynek Burda
