So here it is. The new Google Earth. You’ve not got the whole world in your browser. Ready to explore. To get lost. Perhaps you can fly through landmarks around the world, and your favourite cities like London, Sydney and NYC in stunning 3D, then dive in to experience them first hand with Street View, or even under it, into the ocean!
But how does Googles pull this entire experience together, removing the clouds, sun reflections, and even the cars? How do they make it such a seriously stunning 3D experience? Well firstly, it’s NOT just satellite imagery. It’s backed up by planes, flying all around the world, getting that next level of data.
