Use Google Earth as your Sky Camera

Posted by larrylohrman on February 12, 2006

Think of http://www.earth.google.com as your digital camera in the sky. Google Earth gives you a satellite photo of any given address. This is a great feature for marketing properties. You can save the google earth image as a JPEG file for use just like a image taken by a digital camera. The image is just like you were flying over the property at 600 feet. At 600 feet you can see each of the flower pots on my back deck! We currently have two land listings that I superimposed a plat map over a earth.google.com satellite photo to help show characteristics of the property (see the accompanying image).

    Hi All Experts,
    Does anyone use google earth images as ground image planes for use in aerial scenes. I know how to stitch them together but are there any tools or tricks to make sure that the images are at the same height, angle and such to make sure they stitch well. I know in the pro version you can get bigger images but im not going to pay for the pro version when i could stitch multiple images together…
