Google Earth-by Rich Karlgaard

August 14, 2006

Imagine using Google Earth to zoom low on a city street. Gone is the old pancake-flat look of buildings. They will be depicted in stark relief. And here’s the moneymaker: Addresses that have bought ads, such as restaurants, shops, or commercial buildings for lease, will stand out as a cut above the rest-in perfect , rich, detail and color. Click on of these buildings and you’ll be whisked away to the establishment’s website.

  1. Hi All Experts,
    Does anyone use google earth images as ground image planes for use in aerial scenes. I know how to stitch them together but are there any tools or tricks to make sure that the images are at the same height, angle and such to make sure they stitch well. I know in the pro version you can get bigger images but im not going to pay for the pro version when i could stitch multiple images together…
