The best of Google Earth for September 2014

Early this month we released a KML demarcating the areas covered with the new 3D mesh that Google has been rolling out in Google Earth. It has proved quite popular, with readers regularly letting us know of new areas they have found.

Street View coverage has been expanding, with the most significant gains in Argentina and Malaysia.

As far as we are aware, Google have not done any significant updates to satellite or aerial imagery this month.

We really liked the story about Skybox Imaging capturing the Burning Man festival on multiple days and producing animated gifs from the results. If you haven’t done so already, be sure to check out their official blog post with many more animations like the one below.

We enjoyed looking at the 3D imagery that Google is rolling out and having a deeper look at what you can see in it and what problems it has, and why.

Ghostly Aircraft
If aircraft moved during the image capturing, the result is ghostly looking 3D images.

Another interesting story was about a mural of Google Earth in Chanute, Kansas, that is visible in the Google Earth satellite imagery. Read more in the post to find out why it was made.

We also took a look at the Ground Truth project and how Google creates the Google Maps data and keeps it up to date.

Google Maps contains a lot more than just street names.
