Google Cultural Institute - Preserve and Promote Culture Online | Nuevas Geografías | Scoop.it

Google continues to expand their offerings, this time with the Google Cultural Institute, with the goal of preserving and promoting culture online. The Institute has just "opened" with 42 exhibits that explore a wide variety of events from 1905 - 2008. The site is "to provide a visually rich and interactive online experience for telling cultural stories in new ways. Discover exhibits by expert curators, find artifacts, view photographs, read original manuscripts, watch videos, and more."

Google Maps "Real-Time"

Google Maps "Real-Time" | Nuevas Geografías | Scoop.it

This doesn't exist, but as we image geospatial technologies of the future, this is a glimpse into what real-time satellite imagery streaming could potentially look like (I understand some of the technical hurdles, this is sci-fi). This still image is a sorry visual approximation for this dynamic visual rendering; follow the link for the video version of this imaged, futuristic landscape.

This future google maps “real-time” application will be very interesting because it will convenience for my thing however in the other side it will be a violation of private. Insurance companies could use it against you or for you defend, the same in the case of FBI or other state office or government Issues. Everyone will uncover and public to everyone. It is something to think about it.

While I don't think we are anywhere near the satellite coverage to mimic millions of video cameras simultaneously filming earth at high resolution, it is fun to imagine the possibilities. Yet it is also a big concern depending on who could potentially access this data.
