Google Body provides users with a multi-layered human body exploration tool. It only works with certain leading edge web technologies enabled (Web GL in Chrome, Firefox 4 beta, and nightly WebKit builds), but once I got it to work, I had lots of fun playing around.

As a child, I had a subscription to World Book, an encyclopedia. One of my favorite entries into the series was a group of transparencies that allowed me to peel back various body systems (i.e, skeletal, muscular, vascular, etc.). That’s what this Google Body reminds me of…

Very cool application of GIS related technologies to human anatomy.
