Google’s Earth

If your not aware about Google Earth (based on Keyhole), it is a program (for PC only) which allows you to get a satelite view of the world. Suprisingly Australia, including Melbourne has images. In theory it is just a big mosiac of the world. Your all wondering what on Earth this has to do with Melbourne? Well when I was pondering around the world I tried to find my house, found my old house, old old house, my work, uncles house, old school and practeclly everything I wanted to except MY house. Now the reason for this is becuase theres a big blot of pixalated photos for all the south-eastern and outer eastern suburbs! My house is 20m litterely from the clear photos, it just in the pixalated photos :( But Google have really done a good job with these, I hope they can take some more photos of Melbourne

    If you’re really desperate to look at some satellite images of Melbourne, you’ll find more coverage at the City2See [] website that I saw awhile ago.

    Hopefully Google Earth can get more images of Melbourne, like the quality of the ones on the City2See website. Personally, I’m finding it a bit hard to find my own house on Google Earth (it’s somewhere in the pixelated area — roughly 10-15km from the non-pixelated area.)

    Google Earth is a mixture of satellite images and stitched aerial photos depending how far you are zoomed in, you are seeing a satellite image zoomed in way to much because there is no data from the government department that takes the aerial images (it

    There was a stack of new imagery added on the 16th of September – in decent enough resolution for me to see the roof of a bus shelter near the MCG :)
