Google Earth

| | Comments (1)

So the other night I thought I'd download Google Earth and have a play with it.

I ended up spending four hours in two nights after work plotting the course of my flight to Brisbane and back. I set the zoom and tilt to match most of my photos, and plotted each one with a place marker. Once plotted you can then "play tour" and literally reenact the flight as I saw it through my camera. Way coolness.

What was even more remarkable was that I managed to find the location of every single one of my photos, even some that all I had to go on was a few bends in a river or a few bumps of mountain. The terrain mapper certainly helped with those!

My next project will be to do the same thing for my flights in the USA last year :)

That's pretty impressive stuff!

I'm having the time of my life with Google Earth too... shame the roads in the Sydney metro area aren't mapped out.
