F)It’s late summer and many U.S. cities have reported record (or almost record) heat. Are you withering in warmth and longing for some shade under a tree?. Maybe you can’t easily leave for your favorite park but trees are actually closer than you think! We’re happy to announce that we’ve added 3D trees to Google Earth in three new cities: Los Angeles, Denver and Boulder.Typically, when you imagine trees in Los Angeles, you picture the commanding palm trees that line the famous Hollywood avenues or dot the gracious mansions of Beverly Hills. While Palm Trees may dominate the landscape, there are actually many other trees both native and foreign that inhabit the city, such as the California Oak, Black Walnut trees, and California Sycamore (to name a few). 3d trees western united

G)You can now get a glimpse of these trees with the new 3D tree models covering the West Side, including cities like Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and Hollywood, as well as parts of downtown where the financial district sits. Check out the famous Sunset Boulevard which stretches from the sea at Santa Monica to downtown. Here is where you will find Palm Trees lining glitzy movie posters and billboards that are a marquee signature of the city. 3d trees western united

K)Elysian Park, Los Angeles It is also the Colorado state tree and a very common tree species seen in the Colorado Foothills.

There are two species you absolutely can’t forget when talking about trees in Colorado:.  Colorado Blue Spruce and Quaking Aspen. Both native to Colorado. Colorado Blue Spruce has a very distinct look for the pale blue of its needles. It is also the Colorado state tree and a very common tree species seen in the Colorado Foothills. Quaking Aspen got its name from fluttering leaves in the breeze. And makes up the famous golden fall foliage of Colorado. Take a walk on Cheeseman Park in Denver or a fly over Boulder and you can tell these trees by their unique colors and shapes.

M)There is one other tree species in Colorado deserving a special mention – Cottonwood trees in Boulder. Every late spring, these trees cover Boulder in white cottons. Making it feel like it’s still snowing in June (although that could happen in Colorado). There are several Cottonwoods right by the Google Boulder office that create white blankets of cotton in our garage. And on sidewalks every June and July.

C)We’re excited to announce today that, in a collaboration led by Dr. Matthew Hansen at the University of Maryland, we’ve built the first detailed maps of the world’s forests, from 2000-2012. Documenting and quantifying forest landscape changes such as fires, tornadoes, disease and logging.The most significant findings were that the overall rate of tropical deforestation is increasing. And global forests have experienced a net loss of 1.5M sq km during 2000-2012 due to both natural (disturbance) and human causes.

E)The detailed study was published today in the journalScience, High-Resolution Global Maps of 21st-Century Forest Cover Change. Key to the study’s success was the collaboration between scientists at the University of Maryland, who developed the models to analyze Landsat satellite data, and computer scientists at Google. Who then used Google Earth Engine technology to run these models on more than 650,000 Landsat images. While the analysis would have taken a single computer more than 15 years to perform.

Here are some other notable sites:

B)Google Mapping Only clear skies Google Maps Earth

C)Google Mapping clear skies Google Maps Earth June 26, 2016

D)Google Mapping clear skies To celebrate the sunny days of summer (in the northern hemisphere at least). We’re unveiling new satellite imagery for all Google mapping products today. This stunning new imagery of the earth from space virtually eliminates clouds. Includes refreshed imagery for regions of the world where high-resolution imagery is not yet available. And offers a more comprehensive and accurate view of the texture of our planet’s landscape. google mapping clear skies

E)Google Mapping clear skies The new, even more beautiful global view in Maps and Earth.

Google Mapping clear skies In 2002 NASA released the Blue Marble, a global image of the earth with a resolution of one kilometer per pixel. Based on data from NASA’s MODIS instrument. Updated in 2005 to twice the resolution. It has remained the canonical globally-uniform picture of the earth for over a decade.

F)With the Blue Marble as inspiration, we used Google Earth Engine. Technology to mine hundreds of terabytes of data from the USGS’s. And NASA’s Landsat 7 satellite. The result is a seamless, globally-consistent image of the entire planet with a resolution of 15 meters per pixel. Far finer than is possible with MODIS data alone.

To get a feel for the difference, here’s a comparison of the Grand Canyon. First from the. Blue Marble Next Generation (courtesy NASA’s Earth Observatory). And then in our new Landsat-based imagery.google mapping clear skies

The Grand Canyon. As seen by MODIS and by Landsat 7.

G)The Landsat 7 satellite suffered. A hardware failure early in its life that introduced striped artifacts into all of its images. By analyzing a large number of images we were able to virtually eliminate these stripes. As well as clouds and other atmospheric effects. The process was very similar. To how we produced theglobal timelapse imagery of the earth. That we released last month. google mapping clear skies

Castellón, Spain: One example Landsat 7 image, and the final combined image.

H)The resulting 800,000 megapixel global image is so big that if you wanted to print it at a standard resolution. Of 300 dots per inch. You would need a piece of paper the size of a city block!. Google mappinggoogle mapping clear skies

Northwestern South America: before and after.

I)Mining data from a large number of Landsat images of each area allowed. Us to reconstruct cloud-free imagery even in tropical regions that are always at least partly cloudy. google mapping clear skies

Central Papua, Indonesia: before and after.

J)We prioritized recent data when it was available. So 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. Google mappinggoogle mapping clear skies

Agricultural expansion in Saudi Arabia: before and after.

This new picture of the earth also reveals the texture of the landscape with greater clarity than ever before. google mapping clear skies

Continuing deforestation in Brazil: before and after. Google mapping

K)We’re proud of the progress we have made, but there is always room to keep improving. For example, although we have tried to minimize the impact of the stripe artifacts in the Landsat 7 images. They are still visible in some areas. There is more good news though: the new Landsat 8 satellite. Launched earlier this year, promises to capture even more beautiful and up-to-date imagery in the months and years ahead.

C)Google Earth Engine Global Forest Bring Forests are the mighty lungs of our planet. They absorb carbon dioxide. And emit oxygen on which all people and animals on Earth rely. For the sake of our future, it is critical that all people. Including the next generation, understand our global forests in order to manage them sustainably.

Today, Science in the Classroom,Dr. Matt Hansen of the University of Maryland. And Google Earth Engine are presenting. Global Forest Change Explorer to help engage young people in forest conservation.

D)Global Forest Change Explorer website contains maps that are available for interactive analysis as well as an accompanying activity worksheet. Explorer Tool relies on open data that is used by remote sensing and. GIS professionals in their work.google earth engine global forest bring

E)Fly to different parts of the world and compare data.
A number of years ago. Dr. Matt Hansen and a team of researchers at the University of Maryland turned to. Google Earth Engine to map high-resolution global forest cover with. Earth Engine’s cloud-based image processing and computing. The team mapped global forest loss and gain from 2000 to 2012 at 30-meter resolution for the entire globe. In 2013, the methods and results were published in Science Magazine and online for everyone to explore. These findings are now an important part of the website. Global Forest Watch. Which gives governments and decision makers free access to the data and tools required to monitor and manage their forests.google earth engine global forest bring

F)Dr. Matt Hansen presenting at the World Economic Forum.
Science in the Classroom. (SitC) thought this was great research to bring into the classroom and make available to anyone online. SitC packages annotated research papers with supplemental teaching materials to help pre-college.

And college students understand the structure and workings of scientific research. SitC and Google Earth Engine built the. Global Forest Change Explorer to make. Dr. Hansen’s data accessible to a younger audience.
