If the picture is of low quality or you're just curious, you can show a different picture on the globe by clicking on the Historical Imagery tab at the top (looks like a clock…) and sliding the tab up or down.
My photos on Google Earth . August 20th, 2007 Â· 4 Comments . My interest with Google Earth was rekindled when I read Mawee's entry showing a captured image of her hou…se from Google Earth. Instantly, I opened Google Earth from my PC & explored it, then I remembered Panoramio.com, I submitted some photos on panoramio. So what the heck is Panoramio, it is a site that offers online photo storage, as an additional feature, the possibility of showing your photos on Google Earth. I started uploading & mapping my photos on Panoramio last May, there was no promise of your photos to be shown on Google Earth in an instance, it takes time.. Yesterday, after ignoring Panoramio for about 2 months, my photos finally appeared on Google Earth. I have submitted 16 photos, 13 of which are now available & viewable through Google Earth, here are the 13 photos featured:. i found this on another web page hope this helps!. To copy a screenshot of Google Earth, go to Edit, then Copy Image. (or press Ctrl+Alt+C) You can then copy this image into Paint or any other picture editing program.
Google Earth and Google Maps are great tools to view high-resolution satellite imagery of the Earth.
Google never lets on when it will update an area. You can, however, subscribe to e-mail notifications via Google's new 'Follow Your World' app to receive e-mail when the area …is updated. If enough people subscribe to a given area then Google can use that to prioritize which areas get updated.
Dates for satellite imagery depend on what area you're looking at. Dates varies greatly from 6 months to five years old. The imagery date for a given image on Google Earth …is shown in lower-left of status bar. Status Bar can turned on/off in the View menu. See details in article listed in related links.
Google Maps uses the same satellite data as Google Earth andupdated together with bulk updates usually once or twice everymonth but NOT every area is updated on each update.… It's hard to say exactly when a given area will be updated becauseGoogle does not provide advance notice and some areas may beupdated more frequently than others (just because that data is morereadily available). While most images are no more than 3years old , you may occasionally see an older image. Urbancenters and large cities tend to get updated more frequently thanscarcely populated areas largely due to the fact that revenue ofads for businesses in those areas which ultimately pays for theservice. Google announces which areas where updated on several blogs. Googlealso provides a KML file (see below) for Google Earth showing whichregions were updated in each update. Due to overwhelming demand when a given area will be updated Googlehas created a new e-mail notification service. Check out' Follow Your World ' in related linksbelow.
Google's imagery comes from a variety of sources ranging from commercial satellite and aerial imagery companies (e.g. GeoEye or DigitalGlobe). Some of the imagery is given to …Google by city or state governments. Street View photographs on the other hand are taken by Google or its associates.
Google's imagery comes from a variety of sources ranging from commercial satellite and aerial imagery companies (e.g. GeoEye or DigitalGlobe). Some of the imagery is given to …Google by city or state governments. Street View photographs on the other hand are taken by Google or its associates. These photographs are taken by special cameras fixed on top of cars or bikes. See related links to details of how Google turns photos into Street View.
The background satellite and aerial imagery are updated by Google as often as twice a month and Street View on its own schedule. Whenever you start Google Earth you get whatev…er imagery is available. Sometimes you may get blurry imagery and the local disk cache is out of sync in which case you can clean the local disk case. ( see related link below ) Google's layers (weather, traffic, photos, etc) are updated on a per-layer basis. Google refreshes these layers on its own schedule. KML content on the other hand depends whether the KML feed you opened with Google Earth is 1) a NetworkLink in which case it will auto-refresh and get the latest updates or 2) the KML content is static and copied to your saved places once when you first downloaded it. If you right-mouse click on a folder that is a 'network link' then the 'refresh' option will appear in the pop-up. Likewise, the URL to the feed will appear in the Properties dialog along with a Refresh tab with update options. If KML content in your saved places is a static snapshot (one-time copy) then it's up to you to go back to the originator of that KML source and see if it has changed. Most dynamic sources provide a network link to the source to auto-update so you don't have to do this manually.
Google never lets on when it will update an area but you can subscribe to google's 'Follow Your World' notification service to get an e-mail when they do update France or what…ever location you pick. Sometimes newer imagery is available in ' Historical Imagery ', which can be enabled from the View menu. In some cases the 'best' imagery isn't always the newest imagery.
If you have an aerial photo or satellite image then you can create an image overlay in Google Earth with that image and orient it to align correctly with the ground. From A…dd Menu in Google Earth select Image Overlay then browse to the image to use. Then use control corners and rotation tool to orient the image. You may need to use transparency to match the features in the image overlay with those on the map. To share your placemarks with others on the Internet you right-mouse click and select " Share / Post " on the Folder or Placemark feature then pick the related topic for this content. Your placemarks will be uploaded for anyone to see.
To capture the screen in Google Earth you select from the menu File / Save / Save Image... then pick the file name to save JPEG image. Likewise, you can select Edit / Co…py Image from menu to copy screen image into clipboard then paste into an application like MS Word, PowerPoint, etc. (same as pressing Shift- PrntScrn keys from Windows computer to capture the screen).
Google Earth does not have the capability to update their pictures every day. There is typically a one to two year lapse in updates to their site and the process is very costl…y and tedious. In order to update the photos they have to hire people with helicopters in every area they track to perform slow and low fly overs in a grid pattern using an exterior mounted video camera in order the update their site.
In Google Earth there is a Photos layer (includes Panoramio and 360 Cities) which if checked will show photos in the selected view. Click the square "photo" icon on map to see… the photos in a popup.
Google gets its imagery from a variety of sources such ascommercial satellite providers such as DigitalGlobe and GeoEye aswell as from government and local agencies. Once the …imagery isacquired by Google, it next has to be processed into the format andcoordinate system of Google Earth's databases. Then it goes througha quality control process and processing system before gettingdistributed to the Google Earth database servers. This is onereason you usually do not find any imagery newer than about 6months in Google Earth.
