Topographic maps provide detailed information such as land use. Feature names. The locations of natural features. And topographic elevation contours. There are over 50,000 7.5-minute topo maps covering the entire United States (except Alaska. Which is covered in a larger scale). The topographic maps come in a variety of scales, with the most detailed typically being the 7.5-minute version, meaning each map covers an area of 0.125 x 0.125 degrees. This collection of maps lets you easily view all 50,000+ of the 7.5-minute. USGS topographic maps in Google Earth.

The maps in this collection typically date from around 1978 to 2005. The USGS is constantly updating the topographic maps and it seems to take them about 15 to 20 years to get around to updating each individual map. I also have a separate collection of Historic. USGS Topographic maps for Google Earth.

Each topographic map has been converted to a single Google Earth KMZ file. Which is typically about 1-5 megabytes. The maps include the collars (borders), which have information such as the date of the map and the source of the data found on the map. Topographic Maps Overlay Google Earth

The topo maps are accessed by a very simple index. Just zoom in until the blue and green outlines become visible. Then click on the box for the Topographic map you wish to view to bring up the balloon with some information about the map and a. View Map button. Click on the View Map button and after a few seconds (where it will look like nothing is happening). The map will appear in Google Earth.

Keeping Earth. Three years ago we introduced a cloud-free mosaic of the world in Google Earth. Today we’re rolling out an even more beautiful and seamless version, with fresh imagery from Landsat 8 satellite and new processing techniques for sharper images than ever before. But not always over the same place, so we looked at millions of images and took the clearest pixels to stitch together this cloud-free and seamless image.Keeping Earth Screen Shot at

Landsat 8, which launched into orbit in 2013, is the newest sensor in the USGS/NASA Landsat Program—superior to its predecessors in many ways. Landsat 8 captures images with greater detail, truer colors, and at an unprecedented frequency—capturing twice as many images as Landsat 7 does every day. This new rendition of Earth uses the most recent data available — mostly from Landsat 8 — making it our freshest global mosaic to date. Keeping Earth Screen Shot atIn the new view of New York City, details like skyscrapers, building shadows, and baseball and softball fields in Central Park shine through.   Today we’re rolling out an even more beautiful and seamless version, with fresh imagery from Landsat 8 satellite and new processing techniques for sharper images than ever before.Keeping Earth Screen Shot atToday we’re rolling out an even more beautiful and seamless version, with fresh imagery from Landsat 8 satellite and new processing techniques for sharper images than ever before. More than 700 trillion. individual pixels—to choose the best cloud-free pixels.

Processing imagery with Earth Engine. But not always over the same place, so we looked at millions of images. And took the clearest pixels to stitch together this cloud-free and seamless image. 

 

 To produce this new imagery. We used the same publicly available. Earth Engine APIs that scientists use to do things like track global tree cover, loss, and gain; predict Malaria outbreaks; and map global surface water over a 30 year period.

Like our previous mosaic. We mined data from nearly a petabyte of Landsat imagery—that’s. More than 700 trillion. individual pixels—to choose the best cloud-free pixels. To put that in perspective. 700 trillion pixels is 7,000 times more pixels than the estimated number of stars in the Milky Way Galaxy. Or 70 times more pixels than the estimated number of galaxies in the Universe. Keeping Earth.

Landsat program and its commitment to free and accessible open data. Landsat, a joint program of the USGS and NASA. Has observed the Earth continuously from 1972 to the present day. And offers a wealth of information on the changes to the Earth’s surface over time. And it’s all available in Earth Engine!

 

The new imagery is now available across all our mapping products. To check it out, open up Google Earth, or turn on the satellite layer in Google Maps. Keeping Earth.

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

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.

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!

3D trees in the western United States

3D trees in the western United States

3d trees arbres D Arbres bAugust 31, 2011

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).

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.

Or jump to the see more native species like the native Oak tree species in Elylsian Park adjacent to Dodgers Stadium.

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.

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. Looking at these 3D trees on Google Earth makes me feel like sneezing all of a sudden…

Google Street View Colorado River

Explore America’s most endangered river on Street View

Google Street View Colorado River March 13, 2014
Google Street View Colorado River This guest post is by Chris Williams. Senior Vice President of Conservation at American Rivers. We’ve partnered with American Rivers to share the adventure of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon in Google Maps. -Ed.While you admire its grandeur. Remember that the river is also at risk. One of the United States .                                                               It wasn’t until 1869. when John Wesley Powell led a small exploration party on a rafting trip. That the natural wonders of the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon came fully into view.google street view colorado river ColoradoRiver

For 6 million years, the Colorado River Google Street View Colorado River has flowed through the heart of the desert southwest, its waters slowly carving out a canyon so vast it can be seen from space—yet so remote it didn’t appear on early maps of the region. It wasn’t until 1869. When John Wesley Powell led a small exploration party on a rafting trip. That the natural wonders of the Colorado River.

Now with Google Street View. You can ride the whitewater rapids, cruise the sleepy river bends. And discover the side canyons that make the Colorado River a treasured resource.
By the time it reaches the Gulf of California in Mexico. Google Street View Colorado River. The river is barely a trickle—.a ghost of its once magnificent self. We’ve partnered with American Rivers to share the adventure of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon in Google Maps. -Ed.While you admire its grandeur.

But it’s also one of the most endangered, dammed, diverted and plumbed rivers in the world, thanks to a century of management policies and practices that have promoted the use of Colorado River water at an unsustainable rate.
Start at an iconic spot like Deer Creek Falls or North Canyon, or climb up to the Nankoweap Granaries. Geology fans will enjoy formations like Hermit Shale andTapeats Sandstone. On your journey, look out for wildlife like big horn sheep and signs of a volcanic dam that naturally occurred centuries ago.

While you admire its grandeur. Remember that the river is also at risk. One of the United States’. most important resources. The Colorado River provides drinking water for 36 million people from Denver to Los Angeles. Supports a $26 billion recreation industry. And irrigates nearly 4 million acres of land that grow 15 percent of our nation’s crops. But it’s also one of the most endangered. Dammed. 2

We’re proud to partner with Google. And Street View to raise awareness of the need to protect and restore the river. It’s time to speak up and protect the wonder of the Grand Canyon. And the riches of a healthy Colorado River. Join American Rivers and help us protect and restore this iconic river of the west—for today and for future generations. google street view colorado river ColoradoRiver By the time it reaches the Gulf of California in Mexico, the river is barely a trickle—a ghost of its once magnificent self.                     You can see evidence of the river’s decline In Street View, like the high water mark (showing 1950s driftwood on top of the rock), or sedimentation along the river’s edgedown by Lake Mead.
But it’s also one of the most endangered, dammed, diverted and plumbed rivers in the world, thanks to a century of management policies and practices that have promoted the use of Colorado River water at an unsustainable rate.
