Abstract

Following Google’s 2004 acquisition of Keyhole Corp. and the subsequent release of Google Earth™ mapping service in 2005, people all over the world have a bird’s-eye view of the world at their fingertips. Google Earth™ provides a global mosaic of aerial photographs and satellite imagery integrated with a variety of other information including roads, towns, parks, and other cultural features. Most importantly, it provides the means for users to post their own content and to interact with each other in the Google Earrh™ Community. The images used in the mosaic were all obtained in the last three years and are continuously updated. Image resolution, although overall very good, is variable. In some areas, image resolution can be as high as 1 m (3.3 ft) per pixel; however, in other areas the image resolution is low and may be blurry at the desired view.
