Ayers Rock in High Resolution
During the demonstrations at last week's Google Geo Developer Day one of the many new sights seen was Ayers Rock (or Uluru) in Australia which is now available in high resolution satellite photos. Since Google was kind enough to add 4 times as many places in high resolution on June 8th, it's inevitable there are many new places such as Ayers Rock now viewable in Google Earth. I'm expecting a flood of new interesting sights such as this in the coming weeks.
Some people may notice the shape of the rock is not the same as in real life. Keep in mind that the digital elevation model Google uses is based on data from NASA's space shuttle, and they have chosen to keep the data to a manageable size for computer memory to make sure as many users as possible can view the 3D data. If they used even higher resolution 3D terrain data it might slow down the experience too much for those with slower computers. It would be nice if there were a higher resolution terrian option for those with more horsepower.
