A US company who has created software which can layer sound over locations in Google Earth - Wild Sanctuary has over 3,500 hours of soundscapes from all over the world. The firm is said to be "in talks" with Google, although no official agreement has yet been made.
The curator of the collection, Dr Krause, has spent the last 40 years collecting a variety of nature sounds, and now has the largest library of natural sound. The software is to be presented at the Where 2.0 conference in San Jose, California on 29 May, where up to two dozen sounds would be show-cased at first.
Dr Krause would also like sounds of before and after to be added saying:
