Back in September, Geoeye and Google launched Geoeye-1, the world’s highest resolution, commercial Earth-imaging satellite that will provide images for Google Maps and Google Earth. After a month of calibration and testing, the satellite delivered its first color half-meter ground resolution image – taken of Kutztown University in Pennsylvania. With the satellite successfully delivering picture perfect images, all you exhibitionists better start strutting your stuff and you privacy advocates better take cover as Google has its (Geo)eye on you now.
