Google take on the world.. and win..

10 07 2005

I downloaded Google Earth last night.. It’s a program that allows you to view anywhere on the planet from Keyhole satellite imagery.

Wow.

The top image shows Melbourne CBD and the Telstra Dome.. You could zoom in more, but I have chosen not to.

The whole concept on it’s own is enough to blow you away. But then I saw the true power of it. The software allows you to add layers, so the Australian ABC released a layer to detail the horrendeous events in London last week. The second image shows it all. Notice the tagged locations, hyperlinks to extra information etc.
