B)Satellite imagery. To celebrate the sunny days of summer (in the northern hemisphere at least), today we’re launching new satellite imagery for Google’s mapping products. This stunning global view is virtually cloud-free and includes refreshed imagery in more locations—giving you an even more accurate and comprehensive view of our planet’s landscape.

Satellite imagery. The new, even more beautiful global view in Maps and Earth.

C)Our satellite imagery is usually created like a quilt: we stitch together imagery of different parts of the world. Using a process similar to how we produced the global time-lapse imagery of the Earth, we took hundreds of terabytes of data from the USGS’s and NASA’s Landsat 7 satellite. Sometimes dozens of photos of a single spot in the world. And analyzed the photos to compute a clear view of every place, even in tropical regions that are always at least partly cloudy.

The result is a single, beautiful 800,000 megapixel image of the world, which can be viewed in Earth and Maps when you’re zoomed out to a global view.  This global image is so big, if you wanted to print it at a standard resolution of 300 dots per inch you’d need a piece of paper the size of a city block!. This image is then blended into our highest resolution imagery. Giving a beautiful cloud-free global view and detailed images in the same seamless map.

D)Central Papua. Indonesia: before and after.

This update also includes refreshed imagery in many regions of the world. Especially in areas where high-resolution imagery is not available. Including parts of Russia. Indonesia and central Africa.

E)Saudi Arabia: before and after, showing increased agricultural expansion.

You can see the new satellite imagery by going to Google Maps and turning on satellite view. Or by opening Google Earth. And zooming out. And to read more about what went into creating this imagery. Check out our detailed post on the Lat Long blog. Have fun exploring!

C)We want to create technology that helps millions of others understand our changing world and live more sustainably. Whether it’s connecting people with public transit routes. Or using the data that powers. Google Earth to help you see if your roof is good for solar panels. In honor of Earth Day this month, we’ve gathered together some of the ways Google can help you reduce your everyday emissions and learn more about preserving our world. Google Earth Engine Global. Monitoring forests and wildlifeGoogle Earth satellite technology gives scientists. And environmentalists a way to measure and visualize changes of the world on both land and water. This technology can have great impact on monitoring endangered animal populations around the world. For example, with the help of Global Forest Watch. Powered by Google Earth Engine. Scientists at the. University of Minnesota are suggesting that wild tiger populations may rebound by 2022, due to the efforts to restore tiger habitats in key regions.             google earth engine global

Going solar. We’re also working with organizations like Sierra Club and their Ready for 100 campaign to help analyze the solar potential of cities across the US.

D)Looking to generate clean energy savings with solar power on your home? Check out Project Sunroof. A solar calculator that estimates the impact and potential savings of installing solar on the roof of your home. Taking Google Earth imagery and overlaying annual sun exposure and weather patterns. Sunroof is able to assess viable roof space for solar panel installation. Estimate the value of solar and savings based on local energy costs, and connect you with providers of solar panels in your area. Google Earth Engine Global.

E)As of this week. Sunroof expanded to 42 states across the U.S. (from 10 states in December). Which makes imagery and data available for a solar analysis to 43 million rooftops. We’re also working with organizations like Sierra Club. And their Ready for 100 campaign to help analyze the solar potential of cities across the US.

Measuring air pollutants.

F)For the past few years. F)Google Earth Outreach and the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) have been working together to map methane leaks from natural gas pipelines under our streets. Since methane is a very potent greenhouse gas (GHG). Even small leaks can add up to big emissions that can hurt our climate. By attaching methane analyzers to select Street View cars, we’ve driven more than 7,500 miles. And have mapped 4,200+ leaks in 10 cities. What we found ranges from an average of one leak per mile. (in Boston) to one leak every 200 miles (in Indianapolis). Demonstrating the effectiveness of techniques like using plastic piping instead of steel for pipeline construction. We hope utilities can use this data to prioritize the replacement of gas mains. And service lines (like New Jersey’s PSE&G announced last fall). We’re also partnering with Aclima to measure many more pollutants with. Street View cars in California communities through this year. Anyone can explore the maps at http://www.edf.org/methanemaps.

This interactive experience enabled people to explore these changes like never before—to watch the sprouting of Dubai’s artificial Palm Islands, the retreat of Alaska’s Columbia Glacier and the impressive urban expansion of Las Vegas, Nevada. Today, we’re making our largest update to Timelapse yet, with four additional years of imagery, petabytes of new data, and a sharper view of the Earth from 1984 to 2016. We’ve even teamed up again with our friends at TIME to give you an updated take on compelling locations.

E)Using Google Earth Engine, we sifted through about three quadrillion pixels—that’s 3 followed by 15 zeroes— from more than 5,000,000 satellite images for this latest update, we had access to more images from the past, thanks to the Landsat Global Archive Consolidation Program and fresh images from two new satellites, Landsat 8 and Sentinel-2.

F)We took the best of all those pixels to create 33 images of the entire planet, one for each year  we then encoded these new 3.95 terapixel global images into just over 25,000,000 overlapping multi-resolution video tiles. Made interactively explorable by Carnegie Mellon CREATE Lab’s Time Machine library. A technology for creating and viewing zoomable and pannable timelapses over space and time.

D)Rooftop solar is a viable option for many cities today. Sunroof’s data explorer found that in more than 90% of communities that the tool covers within 42 states nationwide. Well over half the rooftops are viable for solar. Today, cities like Denver. And organizations like League of Cities see great value in using the data explorer tool to evaluate whether solar can drive economic savings and growth. As well as help transition energy consumption to lower carbon sources for their communities. Here’s what they have to say;.

E)Cooper Martin, Program Director of the Sustainable Cities Institute,  League of Cities

“Our Sustainable Cities Institute program aims to provide guidance. And information for governments that want to pursue sustainability and ensuring that solar is easy. Fast and cheap to install. Sunroof’s Data Explorer tool can help inform city stakeholders about the opportunity of solar energy. And the work that is needed to support solar-friendly policies. ”

Thomas J. Herrod, Climate and Policy analyst, City of Denver.                                                                   

F)“As a City with a bold and ambitious goal of reducing 80% of Greenhouse Gas emissions by the year 2050.  Project Sunroof data is a key tool in our arsenal of potential strategies.  Rooftop solar is already a viable option within Denver. But this tool helps us refine our efforts to ensure equity in our outreach, efficiency in our efforts. And measurement in our management resources.  Of equal importance is the ability to identify where rooftop solar may not be an option –. Helping us identify areas where other renewable energy programs offered by our Utility can fill the gap.  We are thrilled to be able to utilize Project Sunroof in our Climate mitigation effort. And help inform our community about the bountiful resource that renewable energy can provide.”

Mark Trout, CIO, Vivint

G)“In previous analysis we’ve done, comparing Project Sunroof data estimates to actual systems performing in the field. We’ve found Google’s information to be a highly accurate source for predicting the solar performance of a rooftop system. At Vivint Solar we are constantly focusing on how to better delight our customers. And advance the solar industry through leading innovation. Project Sunroof is a prime example how technology can improve the consumer experience. And accelerate solar deployment here in the US.”

H)The release of the data explorer tool marks another milestone across the Project Sunroof initiative where the use of Google’s. High quality information has the potential to accelerate the growth of solar by capturing the public imagination. And helping communities make smarter decisions in their transition to cleaner power sources. earthtopomaps

B)Environment. Every year people search on Google trillions of times; every minute people upload more than 400 hours of YouTube videos. All of that takes an incredible amount of processing power — which means energy. Our engineers have spent years perfecting Google’s data centers. Making them 50 percent more energy efficient than the industry average. But we still need a lot of energy to power the products and services that our users depend on. We began purchasing renewable energy to reduce our carbon footprint and address climate change — but it also makes business sense.                                                                                         environment

B)Environment. I’m thrilled to announce that in 2017 Google will reach 100% renewable energy for our global operations —. Including both our data centers and offices. We were one of the first corporations to create large-scale, long-term contracts to buy renewable energy directly; we signed our first agreement to purchase all the electricity from a 114-megawatt wind farm in Iowa, in 2010. Today, we are the world’s largest corporate buyer of renewable power, with commitments reaching 2.6 gigawatts (2,600 megawatts) of wind and solar energy. That’s bigger than many large utilities and more than twice as much as the 1.21 gigawatts it took to send Marty McFly back to the future.                                              environment

To reach this goal we’ll be directly buying enough wind and solar electricity annually to account for every unit of electricity our operations consume, globally. And we’re focusing on creating new energy from renewable sources, so we only buy from projects that are funded by our purchases.

Over the last six years, the cost of wind and solar came down 60 percent and 80 percent, respectively, proving that renewables are increasingly becoming the lowest cost option. Electricity costs are one of the largest components of our operating expenses at our data centers, and having a long-term stable cost of renewable power provides protection against price swings in energy.

Our 20 renewable energy projects also help support communities, from Grady County, OK, to Rutherford County, NC, to the Atacama Region of Chile to municipalities in Sweden. To date, our purchasing commitments will result in infrastructure investments of more than $3.5 billion globally, about two-thirds of that in the United States. These projects also generate tens of millions of dollars per year in revenue to local property owners, and tens of millions more to local and national governments in tax revenue.                                                                        environment

So, we’re on track to match our global energy consumption on an annual basis by next year. But this is just the first step. As we look to the immediate future. We’ll continue to pursue these direct contracts as we grow. With an even greater focus on regional renewable energy purchases in places where we have data centers. And significant operations. Since the wind doesn’t blow 24 hours a day. We’ll also broaden our purchases to a variety of energy sources that can enable renewable power. Every hour of every day. Our ultimate goal is to create a world where everyone — not just Google — has access to clean energy. For more on these next steps, read our white paper.

How Google purchases and uses renewable energy.

Operating our business in an environmentally sustainable way has been a core value from the beginning. And we’re always working on new ideas to make sustainability a reality —. Like enabling the building of healthy workplaces and creating a living, breathing dashboard for the planet. We’ve reported our carbon footprint and published information on our sustainability programs for many years in white papers. Blog posts. And on our website. Now, we’ve put all this information together in a new Environmental Report.

You can also check out our new environment website. Where we share stories of how we are finding new ways to do more while using less. Most of our on-campus sustainability initiatives were started by a few passionate Googlers. And have now grown into company-wide efforts. From the solar panels on our roofs to our bike-to-work program. These initiatives sit at the heart of our company culture. And help both us and our users reduce our impact on the environment.

Google is the largest corporate purchaser of renewable energy in the world.

The science tells us that tackling climate change is an urgent global priority. We believe the private sector. In partnership with policy leaders, must take bold steps. And that we can do so in a way that leads to growth and opportunity. And we have a responsibility to do so . To our users and We have lots of progress left to make. But these achievements we’re announcing today feel like a breath of fresh air. Now, back to work. Google. Google Topic Environment. earthtopomaps
