    Forbes: America's Fastest-Growing Suburbs - Google Earth Version

    Today on Forbes: America's Fastest-Growing Suburbs.

    The fastest-growing suburb in the country is Lincoln, Calif., just outside Sacramento. Its population jumped from 11,746 to 39,566, or an increase of 236%.
    They even provide a table for you to view, showing population growth over the past year. They also have some maps. But the maps are anemic, when compared to the power of Google Earth KMZ geographic information.

    So, I've taken it one step further. I created a Google Earth KMZ file of the top three fastest growing suburbs. Click the placemarks, and you'll be taken to each of the three communities. The pattern of develoment in each of these communities jumps right out at you! All possible because of Google Earth.

    The KMZ file of the top three fastest growing suburbs is attached below.
