Learning About Earth via Global Connection PDF Print E-mail
Written by Glenn Letham (GISuser editor)   
30 September 2005
EarthGlobal Connection is a joint project of Google, National Geographic, NASA, and Carnegie Mellon University. The project's long-term goal is to help us learn about and meet our neighbors across this globe, and learn about our planet itself. The project is working with the Google Earth browser to develop some ver innovative apps. To date projects have included Hurricane Katrina mapping, Integrating National Geographic data with Google Earth, and a project called GigaPan.

Global Connection Projects:

Integrating NAtional Geographic information with Google Earth - On September 16, 2005 the new National Geographic layers for Google Earth went live. These layers reflect the collaboration of the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, NASA, National Geographic, and Google.

Hurricane Katrina aerial photography - In the days following the hurricane, the Remote Sensing Division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) took approximately 7,900 high-resolution aerial photographs of the areas impacted by Katrina. CMU and NASA Ames assisted the Google Earth team and NOAA by creating overlays in Google Earth to display these NOAA images.

Giga Pan - The Global Connection project has developed a low-cost device capable of capturing panoramas in excess of one gigapixel (1 billion pixels).
