” If you think you have seen it all then you are wrong, Google Earth and Google Map does not allow you to see everything. There are some places or secrets which are kept under darkness by Google Maps. Below is the list of 10 places which are not allowed to see on Google Maps. A collection which we will be sharing with you.”

 

 

 

 

” The Dugway Proving Ground in Dugway, Utah is a region occupied by the U.S. Army where the military can test biological and chemical weapon systems. The Michael Aaf building on the proving ground is whited out, most likely for security reasons.”

MapBox Plans to Bring You Super-Fresh Satellite Imagery

image

” I really love both maps and images of Earth from space, so when I learned this week of MapBox’s plan to deliver satellite
imagery that is just hours old from all over the planet, I thought they must have done this just for me.!

  They didn’t, but I am really excited about this. Here’s why: A major barrier between the average person and satellite data is the ability to process that data and turn it into a usable image. MapBox intends to remove that barrier. Yesterday I talked to two of the folks behind what they are calling MapBox Satellite Live.

“Let’s get the most recent imagery possible out there,” Chris Herwig, who leads the satellite team, said. “Let’s get that imagery out there in a format everyone can use that doesn’t require any specialized knowledge.”

Yes, please! ”
