Many individuals when using free software applications such as Google Earth 3D appreciate the inclusion of live Satellite pictures. These pictures give the user a bird’s eye view of how a certain landmark appears from an aerial perspective.
Many land researchers also like the additional aspect of live Satellite pictures incorporated with maps that show the terrain of the area they are researching.
The live Satellite pictures tend to enhance the value of the research.
When you locate a landmark of which you’d like to research, you are provided by way of live Satellite pictures an aerial shot of the place in question. For instance, if you are reviewing a map of the city of London and want to apprise yourself of what is around the Tower of London, you may not only look at the map but also glean some perspective on the tower itself.
You are provided a view of the tower as it appears by way of satellite. The live satellite pictures within an application such as Google Earth 3D again are presented from an aerial viewpoint and allow for zoom so that the user may get a close up look at the landmark as well as the surrounding area around the object. The entire experience gives the user a better sense of what it may be like to be on location at the site which in many cases far away place.
Also relative to live Satellite pictures, the interactive capability in order to zoom in on what you may see from the Satellite’s perspective gives more depth and dimension as somewhat explained to map viewing.
Further since live Satellite pictures are not exclusive to the program the user may also affect searching for various street addresses in and around where they are interested and at the same time employ the zoom function within the map just as they do within the live Satellite pictures.
There are actually a host of sites one may go for live Satellite pictures as well as street maps and maps showing an areas topography. However probably the best known in this regard is Google Earth which provides live Satellite pictures along with maps in three dimension.
The Google Earth application allows its user to view landmarks such as the Pyramids, the Tower of London, the Eiffel Towner and many other well-known sites. The aerial view of these locations can once again be zoomed in upon so you may clearly see the subject close up. Further if it is helpful you can open up the tab that allows the program to provide street names and subjects that are around the famous site. Many individuals leave these tabs closed to allow for a clear view of the site, however if you are planning on paying a visit and want to get an idea of the surrounding street locations then suffice it to say the street names may serve beneficial to you.
Summarily, live satellite pictures enhance your sense of the area especially when you are researching an area relative to land based research or in planning a visit.
