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.

Imagery Update Virtually visit more places

Imagery Update: Virtually visit more places in high-resolution

September 28, 2012
Our quest to create the most comprehensive and accurate map of the world is ongoing, but we’re happy to take a pause and share some impressive progress that our Google Maps and Earth imagery teams have recently made. We’ve refreshed the high resolution aerial and satellite imagery for many places around the world, and released some new 45 degree imagery as well.

New 45° imagery available for 51 cities:

In addition, 45° imagery is now available in Google Maps for 37 U.S. and 14 international locations. Below are some examples of the beautiful new views from Pisa, Italy and Winnipeg, Canada.

Probably one of the most famous landmarks in the world is the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Its construction started back in 1173 and extended over a period of almost 350 years. Due to increasing incline during the last Century, a stabilization effort was performed that took almost two decades to complete. Today the tower is said to be safe from collapsing for at least 200 more years.

 
Leaning Tower of Pisa – Can you detect the angle?

In the language of the native Cree people, the city’s name of Winnipeg means “muddy waters.” The first European settlements in the area were several fur trading posts started around 1738. Today Winnipeg’s economic and educational significance within Canada is undoubted. Below is an image of The Forks which designates the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers.

New high resolution aerial and satellite imagery:

The aerial and satellite imagery in Google Maps and Earth has now been updated for 17 cities and 112 countries/regions. Below are a few highlights from our latest release:

The aerial image below shows the pentagon-shaped Citadel of Lille, in Lille, France. It was built in 1668 and designed by the great military engineer of the time, Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban.

Vertical Street View of the world’s most iconic rock wall

Vertical Street View of the world’s most iconic rock wall: Yosemite’s El Capitan. earthtopomaps.com

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.

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, Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell camp out 1,140 feet up El Capitan.
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
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.
Alex Honnold and Brett Lowell climbed 3,000 feet to get the entire route in Google Maps.
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.
Hear the legendary Lynn Hill explain describe the gear she uses as she starts up El Cap. earthtopomaps.com

Yosemite’s driven so much of my life that I’m excited to be able to share it with the world through my eyes. 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.

Google Earth Voyager turns 10 today

Google Earth Voyager turns 10 today

Google Earth Voyager June 29, 2015

When Google Earth was first introduced 10 years ago. It immediately stole my heart. Beyond the freedom to fly anywhere in the world. I was captivated by the ability to paint and visualize geographic data on this incredible global canvas. Google Earth Voyager. earthtopomaps.com

Drawn to datasets backed by real human stories. I started making my own maps with KML a few weeks after Earth’s release in 2005. For my master’s degree. I used Google Earth to build a virtual representation of a high-tech biologicalresearch reserve. Vint Cerf saw my work, which eventually led to a job on theGoogle Earth Outreach team. Turning my passion for telling stories with maps into a career. Google Earth Voyager.

2005 was the beginning of Google Earth’s evolution. As well. In August of that year. Hurricane Katrina showed us how useful mapping tools like Earth could be for crisis response efforts. Rescue workers compared before and after Satellite imagery in Google Earth to better locate where people were stranded. And in the years after. With more than 2 billion downloads by people in nearly every country in the world. Earth has enabled people to discover new coral reefs. Journey to theMoon and into deep space, find long-lost parents. Clear landmines and much more.

 Google Earth Voyager.

The ability to empower groups as diverse as school children and NASA scientiststo learn more about the world is what I love about Google Earth. It has the potential to make the planet a far more connected place. If you take the time to explore. Discover and share what you learn. So to celebrate how far Google Earth has come and our leap into the next 10 years. We’ve created a few new ways to help you better see places from around (and above) the most interesting imagery around the globe with a new layer. Voyager, available in desktop versions of Google Earth.

Different imagery types in Voyager are shown by color

In this first edition of Voyager, you’ll find five sections to explore:

  • Street View: highlights from Street View, including the Taj Mahal and the Grand Canyon
  • Earth View: striking landscapes around the globe as seen from space (more below)
  • 3D cities: a showcase of cities and towns available in photorealistic 3D (don’t forget to tilt!)
  • Satellite imagery updates: a map of our most recently published satellite imagery
  • Highlight tour: with thousands of Voyager locations to choose from, take a quick tour of a few to whet your appetite earthtopomaps.com

Earth View
Looking at our planet from above is not only a reminder of how interdependent our human and natural ecosystems are—it also lays bare the Earth’s staggering and often surreal beauty.

The Hammar Marshes of Iran are an uncharacteristic yet beautiful wetland feature in the otherwise arid climate

Earth View is library of some of the most striking and enigmatic landscapes available in Google Earth. It started as a 20 percent project last year by a few Googlers who enjoyed scouring satellite imagery for these gems. These images soon made their way onto Android phones, Chromecast and Chromebooks as a distinctive kind of wallpaper. earthtopomaps.com

For Earth’s 10th birthday, we’re expanding the Earth View collection to 1,500 landscapes from every continent and ocean and making it accessible to even more people. The new imagery is available with an updated version of ourChrome extension and a new web gallery. Download high-resolution wallpapers for your mobile and desktop devices, or better yet, print them up for your walls!
