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.


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.
