How to View Real-Time Images at Google Earth

earthAlthough it is a common misconception that Google Earth images are real-time, they are not. There are, however, two ways to view nearly real-time satellite images on Google Earth. For three-hour old weather images, look for the Clouds layer, found under the new Weather layer folder. NASA also has a layer called DailyPlanet which shows the entire Earth, continuously updated in real-time at a medium resolution. For more Google Earth tips, read the Google Earth Blog.

    How is catching a cheating spouse an “evil use”? I should think that when you are CHEATING, that is an “evil use of your significant other”, not an evil use of this service. IJS

    One thing is that one of the most frequent incentives for using your credit cards is a cash-back or rebate offer. Generally, you get 1-5% back upon various buying. Depending on the credit cards, you may get 1% back again on most buying, and 5% back again on buying made using convenience stores, filling stations, grocery stores and ‘member merchants’.

    Some speculations are being heard that Google is really going to introduce the real-time thing which is contradictory to what you have stated here in this post. Can you clarify?

  • mysciencelessons

    There isn’t a way to see Google real time images.

    For this to be possible Google would need to have cameras permanently positioned (or from satellites) in all the places for which it wants to provide real time images. Then all that information will also need to be streamed continuously. Google does not do this.

    The nearest available are some streaming webcams in places of international interest.
