Same Day Aerial Photo in Google Earth
[NOTE: Google incorporated this photo in the base imagery of Google Earth on December 17th. So, now the link below just flies you to the location. This is now a compilation of a couple of photos including one which is higher resolution on the west side. It also loads a lot faster.]
With some help from Google, we have created the first example (that I'm aware of) of a fully rectified (aligned) aerial photograph taken and put into Google Earth on the same day. The photo was taken by myself in a Cessna 182 from the side window (yes, we had to make a very steep turn to get this straight-down view). Check it out for yourself by downloading this and zoom in on the Las Cruces airport. The entire image may take a while to load since it is about 30 MBytes, but it loads like a normal Google Earth image (with tiles thanks to the Regionator). The photo is of the Las Cruces Airport just after the end of the first day, October 20, of the Wirefly X PRIZE Cup. You can see the planes, rockets, and exhibitor tents.
Google showed an earlier aerial photo we took in the morning during the day in their booth. People were amazed, and some even tried to find themselves in the photo. Thanks to Robin - who helped fly the plane while I stuck my head out the window to photograph. And, thanks to one of the Google folks - Roger - who processed the photos and orthorectified them for Google Earth. Let us know what you think!
By the way, take a look at the 3D models we created of the same show in Google Earth.
