Google Earth gets a boost with high-res color imagery from GeoEye

By andy

I love Google Earth, though it’s one of those apps that I have to limit myself on because otherwise I’d spend all day zooming around its terrain instead of working, eating, sleeping…

So it’s good news that GeoEye has started delivering some of the high-resolution color images from its latest satellite – GeoEye-1 – to Google. GeoEye-1 was launched from the Vandenberg Air Force Base, California on 6th September last year.

All the images were taken in the last two months so they’re bang up-to-date, and were shot from 423 miles up.

Highlights you can spot include Borneo, Indonesia; Cairo, Egypt; Cape Town, South Africa; Hong Kong; Mount Fuji, Japan and Xizang (Tibet), China.
