Yes it is possible to deploy Google Earth and view images from above in real time


To date I had read in Yahoo Answers, that it was only possible with NASA satellites, and that to achieve it was possible only if you had your own satellite. I mean having Google Earth open and being able to see the earth as it is, fly and see the little houses below as it is happening at the same time.

It has been for two days, my laptop open in Google Earth, my glass of soda in hand and there they are, what I did not expect is that the clouds are a bit in the way, but where there are not many, if I look very well I can see below the houses and if I refine more, I cannot see the ants but I can have a clear perception of that village with very good resolution. There goes a road that approaches the urban area, there goes a bus, in real time I can well see that it has a number above it, of course I cannot distinguish it at this height unless I get closer, but I can see it Advancing you must go from east to west on the road that comes from La Paz.

Ah, they did not know it eh, it cost me $ 400 but I have managed to find a way to see images in real time while I have Google Earth open ...

In that comes a pretty girl in a very thin blue suit, red tie and says, do you want more juice sir?

So I take my eyes off the window, put the juice aside and go back to the laptop that has been hibernating, move the mouse and there is the Google Earth again, allowing me to see in the cache.

... and what did they expect? It is not that I lower the "level" as Txus says, esque after the Pisco the good mood of the Bolivian plateau returns.
