How do satellites and computers work together to produce images of earth?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Satellites capture images of Earth using sensors that detect different wavelengths of light. These images are transmitted to computers on the ground for processing and analysis. Computers process the raw satellite data, stitch together multiple images, and enhance the final images before making them available for viewing or analysis.

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Pictures of Earth are taken by satellites, spacecraft, and astronauts in space. These devices use cameras and imaging sensors to capture images of Earth from different altitudes and perspectives. The images are then transmitted back to Earth for analysis and use in various applications, such as weather forecasting, environmental monitoring, and mapping.

Can you update maps on the Magellan Maestro 3200?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Unfortunately, the Magellan Maestro 3200 is an older GPS device that may not support map updates. You would need to check the manufacturer's website or contact customer support to confirm if updates are available for this specific model. It's possible that newer models are better suited for map updates and additional features.

How can you find the most central location on a map to hold a meeting out of about a dozen locations?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

One way is to calculate the geometric center of the locations by finding the average latitude and longitude. Another option is to use a tool or software that specializes in finding the optimal central location based on factors like distance, time, and transportation options from each location. You can also consider factors such as accessibility, amenities, and convenience for all participants when determining the most central meeting location.

Shipwreck Island:

2 - Shipwreck - On the deck of the ship, you can't miss it.

3 - Pier Beach - By the stones where you build your raft.

Airplane Island:

4 - Dark Cave - On the ground next to the locked door.

5 - Skull Rock Jungle - On the ground next to the "Skull Rock".

6 - East River Plains - In front of the quicksand.

7 - South River Jungle - On the river bank by some stones on the edge of the sea to the left

Volcano Island:

8 - Volcano jungle - Nearest the top hot spring.

9 - Geyser plains - Just outside the hieroglyphics door that leads to the Volcano Rim.

once you have all nine of them, go to a crafting table and then leisure and make it into a picture to hang on the wall (but don't hang it up.) then on the 3rd Island you slot it into the ancient door and go into the llama temple.

Why is North Korea blacked out from Google Earth?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

In some cases satellite imagery with missing, incomplete, or unclear map data have been intentionally obscured or blacked out. In other cases Google has been requested by government representatives to black out or blur areas or intentionally use out-of-date imagery for security reasons. Some parts of Korea may be blacked out or blurred for any of these reasons.

See related articles for more details in related links. Many of the blurred areas around the world are listed there.

How do you measure distance in Google Earth?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Here is the way to generate an elevation profile between two points on Earth, which gives you a fair approximation in the altitude differences.

Click Add on the Google Earth Menu bar, and select the Path . Or alternately you'll do the same thing by pressing the combination of Ctrl+Shift+T.

A New path dialogue box appears for you to enter the Name of Path you want to designate and write some description for the same.

Then browse to any location of your interest and click at a place and release the mousse button and go to another place and click and release the mouse button. You'll see a line drawn connecting these two selected points.

Now, click OK on the bottom of the New Path dialogue box, to close it.

On the left side menu go to places and right click on the Path you created and select Show Elevation Profile to see the graph displaying the cross section of the path between the selected two points.

Just mouse over the graph to find the various elevations of the points on the given path from the first point to the second point.

Additionally

If you simply want to measure the distance between two points on the ground (either in a straight line or a path) Google Earth provides a Ruler tool. The Ruler can be found under the Tools menu or in the toolbar (ruler icon). Select the ruler then click on two points on the ground.

See the related link for more details.

How come you can not see people in the google satellite images or maps?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Google imagery is updated often and even if a plane is caught in flight on a given image -the next update for that area will no longer have the plane. Google Earth is more suited for seeing planes in flight especially with its 'Historical Imagery' so you can return to a particular place and time to see a plane caught in flight.

The short answer is that you can see planes in flight on Google Maps and Google Earth. The long answer is that I am sure Google data is pulled from both satellite data and "flown" images. Flown images are taken at lower altitude so commercial planes are likely routed over the one taking the images.

Is google earth a live telecast or satelitte image?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

While Google Earth imagery is not real-time (on average it is three years old), Google is making some layers such as traffic and weather available near real-time updated on an hourly basis.

Also, there is a webcam layer integrated into Google Earth that can show "live" scenes at selected locations -- which is mostly camera photos at fixed locations.

There are also third party data feeds such as real-time flight tracking available.

Can you get older Street View on Google Maps?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Google currently only provides the latest Street View imagery for a given area. There have been requests by many users to provide "historical" imagery for Street View.

Easier said than done since there would be a need for lots of storage for the vast amount of street view imagery. Just keeping the latest high-resolution street view imagery is costly enough. As disks get faster and cheaper over time Google may provide this capability in the future.

Which is the best Google Earth?

Asked by Wiki User

Since it is being constantly updated, the latest one would be the "best" for most people. Some people for example don't like the user interfaces changes introduced in GE 6.0 and prefer 5.0. The latest is Gogle Earth v. 6.2.
