About Mark Aubin

Mark joined Google in late 2004, when his company, Keyhole Inc., was acquired by Google, which led to the release of Google Earth. As a Keyhole co-founder and now a software developer on the Google Earth team, Mark serves as a spokesperson for Google Earth, communicating with customers around the world. Prior to founding Keyhole, Mark worked at Silicon Graphics, where he was an applications engineer specializing in geospatial imaging. It was here that he participated in the development of the legendary "Space-To-Your-Face" project in which people could zoom from outer space to street level views of our planet. While showing this demo, Mark became convinced of the potential for a digital globe product for the masses.
