How does Google Earth collect the satellite images?
They collect their satellite images from a variety of cameras including; low level satellite photography, aerial photography and even on occassion kite and balloon cameras. Though most people think that the images are live they are in fact three years old on average.

Here's a citation from Mark Aubin's post at the Google Librarian Central, about the source of Google Images: "We collect it via airplane and satellite, but also… just about any way you can imagine getting a camera above the Earth's surface: hot air balloons, model airplanes - even kites." Please see the whole post at the related link from Google. And, for extra credit, see the blog post about "How Google Earth (Really) Works" by a co-founder of Keyhole, who first built what became Google Earth. Google Earth acquires their images from many sources. Some of these sources include from satellites in space, airplanes flying over particular locations, and people that drive along the street, taking pictures and video of the area.

You can go to your local county web page. There should be a section for taxes and there will be a GIS Mapping tool on there. As long as you know the property address you… can see images.
The satellite takes pictures of the earth, and sends the photos down by radio, as a digital data-stream. Maybe kind of like the same way you send pictures to your friend's … cellphone, you suppose ?
The images in Google Earth (and Google Maps) are updated on a continuous basis. It's hard to say exactly when an area will be updated because some areas may be updated mor…e frequently than others (just because that data is more readily available). While most images are no more than 3 years old in high resolution areas, low resolution imagery in some areas may be older. When high-res or newer imagery is not available, the base map used in Google Earth is a circa 2000 TerraMetrics/NASA 15 meter resolution base imagery. It takes months of post processing new imagery before they go online so bulk updates usually happen about every 2-3 weeks. Google Earth and Google Maps share the same backend satellite image database and are updated together. Why are newer images sometimes found in Historical Imagery? Newer imagery is sometimes available in 'Historical Imagery', which can be enabled from the View menu option in Google Earth. Sometimes older images are actually of better quality than new images (i.e. there might be a huge cloud over a certain area which encourages using the older, clearer image). This feature is not available in Google Maps. Where was Google Earth imagery last updated? If you want to see where Google Earth (and Google Maps) imagery was last updated either check out the Google Earth Blog for update announcements or simply click on the 'Google Earth Imagery Updates' link below to see the highlighted areas on the globe. When will my area be updated? Due to overwhelming demand when a given area will be updated Google has created a new e-mail notification service. Check out 'Follow Your World' in related links below.

Yes, you certainly can. You can either do this through their earth or maps services. Depending on the area you wish to view, you will have access to satellite images of varyin…g qualities.
Google Earth was first released in 2005 so 1998 imagery is rare. This means Google acquired and processed imagery from that year -- old imagery would be for a small area or… region. For example, there is imagery for 1938 in San Francisco, CA but for only within the city limits and New York City has some imagery for April 1997.
Google Earth gets its imagery from a number of imagery providers including GeoEye and DigitalGlobe, which own and operate high-resolution commercial earth imaging satellites. … GeoEye GeoEye-1GeoEye-2 (Future) DigitalGlobe QuickBirdWorldView-1WorldView-2 Details can be found in related links below.
It depends one what satellite it is. Differents types of satellite orbit the Earth at different altitudes. In Low Earth Orbit satellites travel between 160km and 2000km above …the Earth, in Medium Earth Orbit they travel between 2000km and 35000km above the Earh, and in Geostationary Orbit they travel above 160km and below 35000km around the Equator.

In Google Earth
The free version of Google Earth has an outdated map of the world from about 2005. The paid version of Google Earth is updated regularly.
Google Maps uses the same satellite data as Google Earth and updated together usually once or twice a month. ------------------------------------------------------…--------------------------------------------------Google Both Google Earth and Google Maps are updated with bulk updates usually once or twice every month but NOT every area is updated on each update.
