Let’s Travel by Google Earth Before We Have Enough Money and Time To Travel for Real!

Let’s Travel by Google Earth Before We Have Enough Money and Time To Travel for Real!

Take your Bucket list and start browsing Google Earth. You can visit Mexico, Bali or Madagascar in a few minutes and be amazed by the beauty of your dream countries and outer universe. Of course, it is not the very same feeling as travelling in person. But Google Earth has one advantage. You can wear your comfortable pyjamas while looking at everything you ever wanted to see.

So what is Google Earth? It is a Google service providing a 3D view of the whole Earth and every place on this wonderful planet. And not just that. Google Earth is something like a very detailed map, on steroids. Let’s have a look, what Google cooked for us.

Terrain and 3D buildings

3D Buildings

    With the layer “3D Buildings” you can watch museums, fountains, art… All of that as 3D models. The terrain is simulating the elevation levels, creating unique 3D experiences. Google Earth allows you to zoom into cities. This option is not yet available in all the places in the world.

    The Moon

    Google Earth Moon

      Everyone sometimes looks up on the moon and thinks about how it would feel to walk on the moon’s surface and how the Earth may look like from up there? It will take a couple more years, till trips to the moon will be offered in catalogues in tourist agencies. So in the meanwhile you can check it out on Google Earth. As a bonus, you will get a unique podcast narrated by Apollo astronauts.

      The Sky

      Google Earth Sky

        The universe is endless and has still a lot to unveil. When you choose the “sky” layer of Google Earth you will get an incredible view of nearby galaxies, planets, and stars. But your experience doesn’t end with watching our planet moves and admiring our universe. You can learn from astronomy podcasts and read expert studies. I wish, astronomy would have been this fun in school

        The Ocean

          Humankind is trying to conquer the universe, but forgets the beauty and wealth of the ocean. With Google Earth you can start the journey to the ocean seafloor and admire creatures living deep in the ocean. Worthy to mention is also footage of the Titanic shipwreck, which you can look at in detail.

          Historical sceneries

          Paris Google Earth

            Time travel is possible! You don’t believe me? Google Earth can take you into the past. Look at how your neighborhood changed over time. You may notice, how the population grew, what has been built over time and see how we have changed the whole environment during the last century. You can see all those changes in the date range

            Mars

            Google Earth Mars

              Travelling in the universe has never been as possible at it is now. No, I am not talking about travel agencies offering vacations on Mars, but about a project which is a result of a cooperation between Google and NASA. The Mars layer is allowing you to see latest images NASA took just a few hours ago.

              What else you can do with Google Earth?

              Just travel around all places you always wanted to visit. Find directions, search for places, bookmark them and take notes. When you select directions, you can enjoy a spectacular virtual tour. The accuracy of Google Earth is incredible. When you are planning trips, hikes or bicycle rides, you can select the point you are leaving from and follow the road. By this you can plan everything precisely, and most likely you will not end up in the middle of nowhere searching for help. Be always prepared!

              Have a cup of your favorite tea, sit down on a comfortable couch and enjoy the beauty of the Earth and the Universe around us. If you want to know more about Google Earth, join their community and read related blogs.

              Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

              Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

              Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

              Does technology have all the answers?

              This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

              Creating technological solutions transparently

              This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

              Technology as the connecting tool

              Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

              “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
