Google Earth is the most photorealistic, digital version of our planet. In this video, learn about the pixels, planes, and people that create Google Earth’s 3D imagery.wiki How is a “wiki,” similar to Wikipedia, which means that many of our articles are co-written by multiple authors. Do you want to see how your hometown looked like decades ago? It can be neat to compare what a place looked like before with what it is now. To create this article, volunteer authors worked to edit and improve it over time. With Google Earth on your computer, you travel back in time and view the past, right in the comforts of your home. Yes, Google has images captured by the USDA and other government entities as far back as the early 20th century. You can find these by clicking the tiny icon that looks like a clock with a green arrow pointing counterclockwise. A slider will appear and you can slide it back and forth between present day and December 1930.There’s a single wind turbine near the intersection of 760th St. It’s just one of thousands of them located around the country. Or what if you were looking at the solar farm near the intersection of New Mexico State Road 26 and New Mexico State Road 27, outside Deming, New Mexico and wanted to know where others are located? Finding these things would be tantamount to being able to search Google Earth for objects or structures–not something Google currently enables. Thanks to a new tool from Descartes Labs–a New Mexico startup providing AI-based analysis of satellite imagery to industry, academia, and government–finding every corn field, sports arena, wind turbine, smokestack, or any other object visible on satellite imagery, is as easy as clicking on one you know about and letting some machine intelligence take over. Launched today, Geo Visual Search lets anyone run an automatic query on one of three collections of satellite imagery–one for the U. S., one of the world, and one for China–in order to look for the location of just about any feature that’s identifiable in one of those collections. While the best reason to use the tool is that it’s “really cool,” Descartes Labs CEO Mark Johnson says, the business case is that when the company has talked to its customers about Geo Visual Search, “they get really excited, and they start brainstorming ideas on how to use geospatial imagery and machine intelligence for their business.”More practically, the tool has a wide range of uses, beginning, Johnson says, with allowing those who need to know these kinds of things to see how things change around the world. For example, he says, you could run a query on windmills once a week and look and see how their numbers and locations differ over time.“It’s cool to look at San Francisco, but San Francisco is [just] 50 square miles,” Johnson says. “We thought, ‘How do we do this for the entire planet? S., China, or the world into a large number of tiles, employing a number of neural nets to evaluate a similarity score across each tile, and then quickly providing the tiles that are judged by the system to be most similar to the one originally searched. While the tool returns plenty of false positives–results that look similar to what’s being queried, but aren’t actually the same–it does an admirable job of delivering a list of quality results almost immediately. The system uses the neural nets to look for “thumbprints,” Johnson explains, and then tries to find the closest matches. Those results are terrific in the case of very distinct objects, like wind turbines, and a bit less impressive when searching for things like stadiums or suburbs. He even gets a bit excited talking about how a query for suburbs returns some results that are actually river channels running through mountains. It does also return numerous actual locations of suburbs, and even with the errors, Johnson thinks that’s impressive, particularly given that the tool is capable of running these searches without ever being shown what a suburb is, or a smokestack, or a wind turbine, and so on. The system simply finds the results by comparing the contents of thousands of tiles to the contents of the original tile. Johnson isn’t particularly worried about the privacy implications of the tool, since the imagery is from public satellites. Still, he does acknowledge that the ability to quickly analyze the imagery, which is updated daily, is something that’s never before been possible. But ultimately, what the tool allows for is clicking on, say, a house and finding visually similar houses around the country or the world. Google Earth and Google Earth Pro have alot of uses for the Family Historian. With this program, you can "fly to" a location where your ancestor lived. This is a great feature if your ancestory lived in Sweden and you live in Nebraska. You can plot (with Placemarks) the path your ancestor took in this and other countries. For example, your great uncle went from place to place (presumably for work) as shown on the US Census. You can zoom out of the map you are in and get a visual on the route your ancestor took. You might even want to make a tour based on the wanderings of your ancestory, Google Earth calls them movies. You can make a movie of various locations and then save it and send it to relatives and friends via email. There are many reasons to use Google Earth and the real fun is finding your own uses!

You can fly to a location in a few of ways: 1) Enter the coordinates into the search box and click search 2) Enter the name of a location (Salt Lake Temple) and click search 3) Enter the address of a location (123 Monroe St, Salt Lake City, Utah) and click search Note: When you start typing in a location name or address, a drop down menu will appear with suggestions. Under Record Movie to this location and file, specify a name for your movie. This button is available only after you enter a valid filename for your movie. Google Earth Pro asks you if you want to view the movie file in a media player that supports the movie format you selected. If you see your place in that menu, click on it and it will automatically take you there. Placemarking is a great way to track how your ancestors moved about the world. Click on the Browse button and navigate to a location on your computer where you want to save the movie file when you are finished recording. When the movie begins recording, the Movie Maker dialog box appears below so you can visualize the recording of the movie. If you are satisfied with the results, you can post the file to a local server or use it in a presentation. Place Mark a location by “flying to” that location and clicking the Add Placemark button on the second row above the image screen Zoom out to see your placemarks and what is around them Making a Movie (or Tour): Put all that tracking to good use! Type in a name for the file in the file dialog box and click OK. In the Places panel, be sure the the folder that contains your Mount Everest placemarks is checked and selected. Google Earth Pro records the movie in a small area in the center of the screen. These instructions are taken off of Link You can use the Movie Maker feature to record 3D viewer imagery and save the recording as a movie file. You can make a movie that follows the camera viewpoint to and from multiple locations. This setting works well for movies that you want to provide over the Internet. You can set the feature to record the entire tour without interruption. Once you finish recording and have saved your movie file, you can make the file available on a web site, use it in a presentation, or send it via email. (Windows and Linux only) Under Supported Compression Formats, choose a desired compression format for your movie. Saving Locations You Want to Show First, you need to save placemarks of locations you want to show. Fly to the place you want to add to you movie (tour) 2. Create a placemark for this location by clicking the Add Placemark button on the second toolbar at the top 3. Create a folder and move your placemarks into that folder Record Your Movie: Now you are ready to record your movie. In the Places panel, check and select the folder that contains your placemarks. Test how your movie will play out by clicking the Play Tour button. Note that you can set tours so that they play only once, show descriptive balloons, etc.
