Google Earth 4, now with Clouds

June 14, 2006

Google has announced the beta launch of Google Earth 4, and I’ve got to say its very nice. On the home front they’ve updated their satelitte images of where I live so you can actually see stuff, where as before all you got was a distorted, poor quality images, but it now comes with clouds….oh yeh, and it’s at least nearly 2 years old.

Shot 1: where I live. There is still a tree on the block right where my house stands today. We bought the block in the October of 2004 and the tree went for memory in the November. There’s building in Stage 2 of the Estate I live in, but nothing in Stage 3 (the stage we bought into) but the earth works and roads are completed, but no road works in Stage 4, so I’m guessing September-October 2004:

Shot 2: give me clouds, lots of clouds, over the greater bunbury region….dont cloud me out….

  1. Hi All Experts,
    Does anyone use google earth images as ground image planes for use in aerial scenes. I know how to stitch them together but are there any tools or tricks to make sure that the images are at the same height, angle and such to make sure they stitch well. I know in the pro version you can get bigger images but im not going to pay for the pro version when i could stitch multiple images together…
