  • Animating historical imagery using the Google Earth plugin

    Timothy Whitehead
    30 Oct 2014 | 2:35 am
    Earlier this month we showed you a gif animation of the historical imagery of Europe. It was created by taking screenshots of Google Earth then combining them into an animated gif. However, doing that for every continent would be tedious, so instead we have decided to do it using the Google Earth plugin. Although we have expressed concern about the future of the GE plugin, and a number of sites that used to use the plugin are starting to move to alternatives, it is, nevertheless, still a very useful tool. If you have a browser that supports the Google Earth plugin you should see the Earth…

    With Halloween on Friday, this is a good time to get your pumpkin decorations finished. If you are having trouble covering your house with pumpkins, then why not cover the whole earth with one instead? Back in 2006, Frank created an Earth sized pumpkin that you can download here and view in Google Earth. Since most of our regular readers will have already seen the Pumpkin Google Earth before, we thought we would add a little extra this year, so grab this KML as well for a bit more Halloween atmosphere. For the best effect be sure to turn off the “Atmosphere”. There are four…

    Back in June 2014, Google acquired Skybox Imaging. In September, Skybox provided an impressive demonstration of their capabilities by capturing images of the Burning Man festival and producing animated gifs of its progress. Now Skybox has announced the Skybox for Good program. Under the new program Skybox will work with non-profits to provide fresh satellite imagery where they need it. Of special interest is the fact that the images obtained via this program are being released under a Creative Commons By Attribution license (CC BY 4.0), which allows anyone to view and use the images.

    24 Oct 2014 | 1:00 am
    As mentioned in my previous post, Google recently announced a new version of Google Earth for Android. This version (8.0.0.2305) is a complete re-write of the underlying Google Earth 3D model, and now has access to unified mapping data used by Google Maps and this new version of Google Earth. This means the most current available mapping data can now be viewed in this version of Google Earth (Google Earth version 7 on all the other platforms is based on less current data). Version 8 also adds some enhanced 3D rendering and improves some aspects of KML support. These things are good news for…

    In July 1960, Dr. Jane Goodall stepped off the boat in what is now Gombe National Park, Tanzania with a pair of second-hand binoculars and a notepad. She was 26 years old, and was there to observe and record the behavior of chimpanzees in the wild. This summer, after four planes and a boat ride, I took my first (wobbly) steps onto the shores of Lake Tanganyika. I was about to walk the same paths that Dr. Goodall took to do her groundbreaking research into the lives of chimpanzees. And now—thanks to a Google Maps partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute and Tanzania National Parks—so…

A number of reports have claimed that Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S5 released in April has not sold as well as the models released ahead of it, as many consumers opted to wait an additional five months to purchase the oft-rumored iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
