Thanks for the feedback!
You get images from a satellite using a frequency band. The best way to access satellite images is with Google maps. However, if you want your own, you will need to have at… least $500 USD, and for larger areas up to $14,000. Look at Digital Globe for these.
Google Maps uses the same satellite data as Google Earth andupdated together usually once or twice a month. ------------------------------------------------------------------…--------------------------------------Google Both Google Earth and Google Maps are updated with bulk updatesusually once or twice every month but NOT every area is updated oneach update.
The satellite image taker?
A satellite map shows if its gonna rain or something like that
almost never. my friend's house isn't even built yet (he moved into it after someone had already been living there for quite a long time)
true color is to see vegetation, waters, and mountains and infrared are based on heat patterns, and so the colors on them are not what we might expect.
Maps may be drawn to scale or not to show more or less detail as needed. Satellite images on the other hand are actual photographs of what the ground and landscape are at a pa…rticular time. Both have many uses and tools like Google Maps allow you to switch from a map/street view to a satellite view with a click of the mouse.
The satellite and aerial imagery seen in Google Earth and GoogleMaps are from such a high altitude that you can see cars but peopleare too small to see clearly. However, Goog…le's Street View imagery does allow you to see peopleand Google uses automatic blurring techniques on faces to preventidentification. Just enable the street view mode on any major city,and you'll see people.
Google never lets on when it will update an area but you cansubscribe to Google's " Follow Your World" notification service to get an e-mail when they do update Moroccoor wh…atever location you pick. Sometimes newer imagery is available in ' HistoricalImagery ', which can be enabled from the View menu. Insome cases the 'best' imagery isn't always the newest imagery.
From reports in 2006, the Google Earth and Google Maps data servershave 70.5 TB for both its map imagery and index data, andPersonalized Search uses 4 TB. The data breakdown h…as not beenpublished by Google.
In Google Maps
Google maps offers high-resolution aerial images from satellites. These images are not updated very often. Since they are not updated frequently, newer features of the Earth's… surface are not shown as often as they appear. Certain parts of the Earth are not able to be viewed. They are not able to be viewed due to risks of terrorism and for government protection.

Because they want to see the difference between the two.
The satellite image shows topography, natural and manmade featureswithout political borders.
In Google Earth
Google Maps uses the same satellite data as Google Earth and areupdated together usually once or twice a month. But realize thatsome areas may be updated more frequently than …others (just becausethat data is more readily available). Due to overwhelming demand when a given area will be updated Googlehas created a new e-mail notification service. Check out 'FollowYour World' in related links below.
