Online updating satellite maps danny jones dating emma rigby

Now Google has updated Google Earth with the imagery from Landsat 8, launched in 2013.The new satellite is able to capture images with “greater detail, truer colors, and at an unprecedented frequency — capturing twice as many images as Landsat 7 does every day,” Google announced on its Google Maps blog this afternoon.If you've just turned on satellite imagery for your Google Maps or Earth apps and are wondering if your eyesight has gotten better, the answer is sadly no.Google has rolled out an update that upgrades the satellite imagery on both apps with more detail and better colours.This was still the best imagery available at the time, though, which forced Google to come up with a means of removing those gaps from Google Earth.It did so by analyzing a large number of images, similar to how it produced this global time-lapse image of the earth.Using the live satellite mode I created a screen capture of cars driving down a road, which you can see in the animated thumbnail below.Live Satellite only works for the city of Edinburgh, UK but will be rolled out to other cities in the near future.

If you’d like to see the Live Satellite Mode in action yourself then load up this placemark file.Be warned that Edinburgh is very cloudy today, so you may have to search around a bit to find a gap in the clouds.We’re told that as Google add the Live Satellite feature to more and more cities they plan to rename Google Earth to Google Live Local.As before, the new Google Earth imagery is also cloud-free, thanks to mining nearly a petabyte of data.That’s more than 700 trillion pixels, the company notes, or 7,000 times more pixels than the number of estimated stars in the Milky Way, it adds, having fun with the numbers.To get 3D imagery, your computer needs to meet these requirements.
