Nearly all of us search for the same place: Home. The  starting point. Where we fit into the bigger picture, and one way we define our  sense of identity. F)Google Earth Saroo

Imagine if you didn’t know where “home” was? What would you search for first?                                   google earth saroo earth

C)In 1986, 5-year-old Saroo Brierley fell asleep on a train parked at a rural station in central India. He awoke to find himself locked in an empty carriage barrelling through the Indian countryside to an unknown destination. After two days and nearly 1600 kilometers. The train reached its final stop, the enormous Howrah station in the sprawling Indian megacity, Kolkata. Saroo disembarked alone, far away from family and no way to get home. Living on the streets for months, Saroo survived a series of harrowing encounters before he was taken to an orphanage. In time, he was adopted by an Australian couple and brought to Tasmania.                google earth saroo earth

D)The Brierleys gave Saroo a loving home and a second chance, but memories of his birth family haunted him. As he grew older, these echos became louder until his early 20’s. When he was finally compelled to search for his lost home and family. Right around this time, Saroo heard about a new program called Google Earth. He realized he could use the tool’s satellite imagery to find familiar landmarks. And lead him to the train station from his fleeting memories of that fateful night. Night after night for three years, Saroo followed train lines from space. Combing through thousands of stations until one day in early 2012. He finally found the proverbial needle in a haystack.

E)Thanks to his unwavering determination, Saroo reunited with his birth mother after 25 years. Saroo’s improbable story has been a source. Of inspiration to all of us on the Earth team and to many around the world. We’re especially excited his story will reach new audiences with the release of the new film, Lion, on November 25.

F)To celebrate the film’s upcoming release, we invite you to retrace Saroo’s journey through the Finding Hom. Experience now available in Google Earth’s Voyager layer. The experience takes you behind-the-scenes of Saroo’s search—what he used to guide him. The odds he faced, and how with a lot of will and a bit of luck. He was able to find home.

In 2017, Google will reach 100% renewable energy for our global operations — both data centers and offices.

We’re set to reach 100% renewable energy — and it’s just the beginning

H)In 2017, Google will reach 100% renewable energy for our global operations — both data centers and offices. To reach this goal we’ll be directly buying enough wind. And solar electricity annually to account for every unit of electricity our operations consume.

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.
