Using artificial inteligence on satellite imagery

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 13:03:21 +0000

We recently came across this interesting article which talks about how DigitalGlobe is applying AI to satellite imagery recognition. Humans brains are still extremely useful, so DigitalGlobe also has a crowd-sourcing platform that can be used either on its own, or to train and artificial intelligence algorithm. If you are interested in AI and satellite […]

Wish list for Google Earth for 2017

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 11:09:33 +0000

Here is our wish list for 2017: Google has been making bug-fix updates to Google Earth, which have been very welcome (the crash that used to happen when moving placemarks was very frustrating), but there have been no new features added. We would love to see new features, or even a major update. Google has […]

Observations about the 2016 ‘historical imagery’ updates

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 11:37:38 +0000

Earlier this week we released maps showing the imagery updates of 2016 according to the ‘historical imagery’ layer. The maps were created using the Google Earth Plugin/API, which Google has since shut down. It was scheduled to be shut down on January 11th. It was still working yesterday, January 12th, but is not today, January […]

Is Google selling Terra Bella to Planet?

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 12:01:05 +0000

A recent story in the news is a rumour that Google may be planning to sell its satellite imaging business Terra Bella (formerly Skybox Imaging) to satellite imaging company Planet (formerly Planet Labs). Google acquired Terra Bella, then Skybox Imaging, in mid 2014. At the time, Terra Bella had two satellites, SkySats 1 and 2. […]

SpaceX in Google Earth

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 10:11:41 +0000

This weekend, on January 14th, SpaceX hopes to return to flight with their first launch since the explosion last September on the launchpad of their rocket carrying the Amos-6 mission. As fans of SpaceX, we thought this would be a good time to have a look at some SpaceX related sights in Google Earth. Space […]

Two stages of construction in Google Earth 3D imagery

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 10:47:45 +0000

Thank you to GEB reader Jacob for bringing to our attention an interesting effect in Google Earth’s 3D imagery. In Kingston, Ontario, Canada, there is a building in the 3D imagery that seems to be a combination of imagery from when it was still under construction and imagery from after its completion. The result is […]

Google Earth imagery update outlines for 2016

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 10:03:59 +0000

Today we are releasing our map of Google Earth imagery updates for 2016. Download this KML file to see it in Google Earth. Let us know in the comments if you find any interesting sights that we have not yet covered. Eastern Europe got noticeably more imagery than Western Europe. We guess this is because […]

Low resolution imagery in Google Earth historical imagery

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 09:12:30 +0000

We have recently had several enquiries or comments pointing out that a lot of the imagery in Google Earth ‘historical imagery’ is very low resolution and we thought it would be best to do a post explaining it. The low resolution imagery in question is a set of yearly (from 1984 to date) global mosaics […]
