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.

That dream was never realized. When I was 12, my father passed away, and I had to find work to support my family. So I began carrying goods up the mountain as part of an expedition team. At 30, a dream that had never been mine came true: I summited Everest for the first time as a porter. Google Maps Everest.

Our region is famous for being home to Everest, but it’s also the home of the Sherpa community and has been for centuries. The region has much more to offer than just the mountain. So last year, I guided the Google Maps team through my home region to collect Street View imagery that improves the map of our community. Now you can find Thame on the map and explore other communities nestled at the base of Everest, like Khumjung and Phortse. Google Maps Everest.

Partnering with Google Maps Google Maps Everest allowed us to get important local landmarks on the map and share a richer view of Khumbu with the world, including local monasteries, lodges, schools and more, with some yaks along the way! My hope is that when people see this imagery online, they’ll have a deeper understanding of the region and the Sherpa people that live there.

When people ask what it feels like to reach the top of Mount Everest, I say “heaven.” But I haven’t summited the mountain 21 times because I love climbing. I earned this world record in pursuit of a greater goal: to provide a good education and a better, safer life for my kids. My hope is that my children and future generations have many choices for employment outside of mountaineering.
Your online trip to my home awaits you on Google Maps. And if you ever get the chance to visit the Khumbu region in person, come stay at the Everest Summiteer Lodge that I built with my own hands. We’ll be ready to welcome you.

Google Mapping Only clear skies on Google Maps

Google Mapping Only clear skies on Google Maps and Earth

June 26, 2016
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 2

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

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.

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

The Grand Canyon, as seen by MODIS and by Landsat 7.

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 time-lapse imagery of the earth that we released last month. Google mapping castellon

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

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 south america

Northwestern South America: before and after.

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 papua

Central Papua, Indonesia: before and after.

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 saudi arabia

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 brazil deforestation

Continuing deforestation in Brazil: before and after. Google mapping

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.
