Google Maps, Satellite pics
    #4029651 - 04/08/05 07:01 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Google is offering a new free service with their maps. You can now see satellite pictures. Sadly you can only get detailed pictures of America as of now. But it's still fun to just browse around and zoom in here and there.

The technology and resources available to the public sector are several years (if not more) behind the resources to which our government has access. After a while it will filter down to us, but they are always on top of the technology.

This technology isnt new to the internet:

Although, Google's is MUCH easier and convenient.

I'm pretty sure the government can read your cars' license plates with their satellites.

There are not any satellites with resolution that good. I think the highest res one is IKONOS with 1 m resolution.

Look at how far our satellites can see into outer space, imagine what they could do if they pointed that technology at Earth.

Those satalites aren't even looking at the visible spectrum of light.

I see your point thought.

Blew my mind too. It's making my stomach hurt, it's that cool. I'm getting a whole new perspective, my mind reels as it tries to fit these real images together with my own memories. LMAO wow this is great I love 2005!

I'm looking through my hometown now. I found my house. There used to be a trail running through the woods behind my house. It's on this satellite image. It hasn't been there for years. There are houses there now. It's great to see it again!

I feel so deliciously insignificant.
