How Does Google Earth Work?

I don’t know who “Nat and Friends” are, but their video is pretty interesting …

Don’t know who they’re too but this ‘Sneak Peek’ video from Google led me to them couple days ago.
I am actually quite surprised they use planes+cameras to make automated 3D buildings with that quality!
(and i think that reveals why they terminated uploading 3D buildings to Google Earth couple years ago)

Also there is VR feature which looks amazing! :map:

The advances with aerial photography and photogrammetry are impressive (although they still cover only small “showcase” regions of the earth).

But on a related note, we also have to see that it has become a pure consumer product (professional GIS version almost discontinued) and that Google stretches its view of web neutrality and standards (wants you to use Chrome browser).
