Super Zoom – you want to see just how close satellite images can get…?

Super Zoom. Looks like those satellite images from space are coming closer, apparently equivalent to looking out of a 10 story window. I swear I can see a guy picking his nose near HMS Belfast. Yikes. Be prepared for some scary stuff coming down the pipe in the future.

 The image quality is three times better than Google Maps and Microsoft Live Maps and streets ahead of Multimap. For an average screen resolution, 192.com’s Super Zoom shows 1.5 metres on the ground for every 1cm on your computer screen. This is in addition to the existing 12.5cm resolution aerial photography on 192.com Maps for the entire UK – the best quality available anywhere on the Internet.

    These are aerial photographs, not satellite photographs. The aircraft’s only a few hundred metres up, rather than a few thousand kilometres like a satellite.

    So not quite as scary, don’t worry!

    Rich, phew! :-)

    Satellite images will also suffer from atmospheric distortion – in the same way that we see stars twinkle – so aerial photo will be superior for some time still.
