Two of Google’s star applications–Google Earth and Google Sky Map–give users access to impressive satellite imagery.
With Google Earth, users can “fly” to any place around the world, viewing detailed 3D imagery, buildings, and terrain. Once zoomed in to a specific location, you can activate Street View and pan, tilt, and rotate 360 degrees to see everything else in the area.
Like a planetarium at your fingertips, Google Sky Map features a map of the constellations that moves as you lift your phone to the heavens. Can’t remember if that’s Orion above you? Just point your phone toward it, and find out.
