New (Geo)Eye for Google Earth

Google launched in a joint effort a week ago a satellite that will provide the highest resolution images for commercial purposes yet. Being able to zoom in up to 15 cms, it will only release images at half-meter ground resolution for legal reasons. Google is reaching the levels of military spy technology, and not only in this aspect but in all related to accessing private information. It might be relevant to ask in the future, who will win Google or this or that first-world government?

The camara of the Geo-Eye 1 is able to process up to 700 megapixels per second, a speed at which it would be able to photograph all of Spain in 1 day and a half. GeoEye-1 is designed to take digital images of the Earth from 423 miles (681 kilometers). Moving at a speed of about 4.5 miles (7 kilometers) per second, the satellite camera can distinguish objects on the Earth’s surface as small as 0.41-meter or 16 inches in size.

The satelite´s cost is 350 million euros.
