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.
Google mapping mongolia

Mongolia and surrounds, before and after. Google mapping

You can see our new satellite imagery by going to Google Maps and turning on satellite view. Or by launching Google Earth. And zooming out. Have fun exploring!

Street View Goodall October 21, 2014
In July 1960. Dr. Jane Goodall stepped off the boat in what is now Gombe National Park. Tanzania with a pair of second-hand binoculars and a notepad. Street View Goodall She was 26 years old. And was there to observe and record the behavior of chimpanzees in the wild. This summer, after four planes and a boat ride. I took my first (wobbly) steps onto the shores of Lake Tanganyika. I was about to walk the same paths that Dr. Goodall took to do her groundbreaking research into the lives of chimpanzees. And now—thanks to a Google Maps partnership with theJane Goodall Institute and Tanzania National Parks—so can you.
Street View Dr.Goodall And redefined the very notion of “human.” More than 50 years later, protecting chimpanzees and their habitat is central to the mission of the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI).

Young people will also be inspired to explore the wild through the 360 degree imagery as part of JGI’s educational program. We were invited to Gombe National Park to capture a record of this historic place. Where today the Jane Goodall Institute manages the longest-running chimpanzee research study in the world. It was here that Dr. Goodall. first witnessed chimpanzees fishing for termites using a blade of grass as a tool to dig them out of their mounds. Using tools was an act previously believed to be unique to humans. Her observations revolutionized our understanding of chimpanzees—animals that share 98 percent of our DNA—. And redefined the very notion of “human.” More than 50 years later, protecting chimpanzees and their habitat is central to the mission of the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI). Street View Goodall

Pushing through the brush, carrying the Street View Trekker. We collected thousands of 360 degree images along the narrow paths of the park to share with the world. We first stopped at a location Jane calls “The Peak”.—her favorite vantage point. I could imagine her looking out over the canopies. Peering tirelessly through her binoculars, writing in her notebook, and observing these beautiful animals as they swung through the trees.

 Street View Dubai December 8, 2014
Dubai is home to the world’s tallest tower. Street View Dubai Largest mall and the planet’s only seven-star hotel. With all these modern wonders, it’s no surprise that Dubai hosted 10 million global visitors last year—and aims to hit a record-breaking 20 million visitors in 2020. Starting today. It can add virtual visitors to that list, as Dubai becomes the first city in an Arab country to be added to Street View in Google Maps. Street View Dubai

Start your tour with a drive on Sheikh Zayed Road. Street View Dubai the longest road in the Emirates that runs in parallel to the coastline. Peer up at the city’s iconic skyscrapers and high-rise towers that. In some cases, reach more than 1,000 feet into the clouds. On one side, you can see the city’s elevated and driverless metro system. earthtopomaps.com

Along Financial Road. Pass Dubai Mall, home to thousands of shops. But with an average of 75 million visitors every year. The mall is more than just a retail space. Inside is a 10 million-liter aquarium — one of the largest suspended tanks in the world. — and a facing it there is a flock of famous dancing fountains.

Vertical Street View world’s most iconic rock wall

Vertical Street View June 24, 2015

Today we’re launching our first-ever vertical Street View collection. Giving you the opportunity to climb 3,000 feet up the world’s most famous rock wall: Yosemite’s El Capitan. Vertical Street View To bring you this new imagery, we partnered with legendary climbers Lynn Hill. Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell. Read more about the project from Tommy Caldwell, who completed the world’s hardest climb in Yosemite in January of 2015. -Ed.

“That is awesome. I definitely have to be a part of that.”.

Maybe it was the sheer exhaustion from being in the middle of a 19-day climb of the Dawn Wall. But when the guys at Google Maps and Yosemite National Parkasked if I wanted to help them with their first-ever vertical Street View collection of El Capitan in Yosemite. I didn’t hesitate. Yosemite has been such an important part of my life that telling the story of El Capitan through Street View was right up my alley—especially when it meant working with the Google engineers to figure out some absurd challenges.

Hear the legendary Lynn Hill explain describe the gear she uses as she starts up El Cap. earthtopomaps.com These 360-degree panoramic images are the closest thing I’ve ever witnessed to actually being thousands of feet up a vertical rock face.—better than any video or photo. But my hope is that this new imagery will inspire you to get out there and see Yosemite for yourself… whether you travel up a rock wall or just down the trail.
Climbing is all about flirting with the impossible and pushing the boundaries of what you think you can be done. Capturing Street View imagery 3,000 feet up El Capitan proved to be an extension of that, especially when you take a camera meant for the inside of a restaurant and mount it thousands of feet up the world’s most iconic rock wall.

Doing anything thousands of feet high on a sheer granite face is complicated. But everyone up there had spent years of their lives on a rope and knew exactly what they were doing. After some testing. We used our tried-and-true climbing gear like cams and ropes to make sure the camera wouldn’t fall to the ground in the middle of our Street View collection.

Once we figured out how to keep the camera on El Cap, we created two sets of vertical Street View.

Lynn Hill’s ascent of El Capitan changed the paradigm of climbing. And she had an extraordinary effect on my climbing career. I’ll never forget when she became the first person. Man or woman, to free-climb (using only her hands and feet)“The Nose” back in 1993. Now, you can see her navigate these epic moves.— like climbing sideways on tiny holds of the Jardine Traverse, inventing a “Houdini” maneuver on the Changing Corners and traversing under the Great Roof. Vertical Street View.

Lynn’s epic ascent up El Cap is now in Street View.
Any story of El Capitan had to include my good friend Alex Honnold. He holds the speed record for climbing the Nose at 2 hours. And 23 minutes – most people take 3-5 days. His unwavering confidence in himself is contagious; when. I’m with him, I feel like the mountain has shrunk to half its size. As you make your way around Yosemite in Street View, you’ll see Alex doing what he does best:. chimneying up the “Texas Flake.” racing up the bolt ladder. Or getting dinner ready in the solar-powered van he calls home. earthtopomaps.com  But years of setting ropes proved pretty helpful in figuring out how to get the equipment rigged and ready to collect Street View.
Just a normal day on on the Texas Flake for Alex Honnold.
You’ll also see a glimpse of yours truly on the Dawn Wall. I spent some of my rest days during my January climb of the Dawn Wall testing out the Street View technology the Google team had sent me that month. El Cap is an intimidating environment for experimentation. But years of setting ropes proved pretty helpful in figuring out how to get the equipment rigged and ready to collect Street View. earthtopomaps.com

Then, we really put Alex to work to collect the second set of Street View: the entire vertical route of “The Nose” on El Capitan. One of the few people that could do this efficiently and quickly. Alex took the camera and pretty much ran 3,000 feet up with photographer partner Brett Lowell. Now, anyone can get the beta (climbing speak for insider advice) before they climb the entire route. Vertical Street View. Then, we really put Alex to work to collect the second set of Street View: the entire vertical route of “The Nose” on El Capitan. You’ll also see a glimpse of yours truly on the Dawn Wall.
Alex Honnold and Brett Lowell climbed 3,000 feet to get the entire route in Google Maps.
Yosemite when Google brings students to the park through NatureBridge later this year as a part of this project. Lynn, Alex and I also helped create a new Yosemite Treks page. Where you can take a tour up El Cap and learn more about climbing, from what a “hand jam” is to why we wear such tiny shoes. And as a father. I’m excited kids will learn more about. Yosemite when Google brings students to the park through NatureBridge later this year as a part of this project. Plus, its pretty awesome that students who can’t make it to Yosemite yet will be go on a virtual reality field trip to the Park with Google Expeditions. Lynn, Alex and I also helped create a new Yosemite Treks page. Yosemite’s driven so much of my life that I’m excited to be able to share it with the world through my eyes.
