My summer vacation playground - view from Satelite...!!!

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Panos Kazanelis, Aug 3, 2005.

  1. Thanks to Google Earth (an amazing s/w) I can show you my summer vacation playground.

    Notice the river complexity, the great green mountains, the lakes... even the sea is only 60Km away and there's a fantastic place
    for scuba diving called Sivotta (but I guess that's the only thing Lambros won't be able to perform...)

    original.

  3. Looks like a great place, and lots of white water!!! You SURE you can't teach the little guy how to scuba??? I'm sure a cat could! ;)  Just teasing.... I miss my days in Crete - great part of the world and amazing that so much of it is still wild, compared to north america.
     
  4. Panos, here's where I'll go next week - Cairns, Australia. From there we'll go into the tropical rain forest, and also to the Great Barrier Reef.

  5. Hope you are having loads of fun Panos. Looks like a great place to vacation. Google Earth is a great website.
     
  6. Panos, I was fortunate to travel to Greece on a number of occasions for work. One of the trips I was taken on was from Athens to the port of Patras. The scenery along the way is just incredible. It's a little south of where you'll be but I can only imagine how pretty it is where you're going. Your homeland is definitely one of my favorite countries! :) 
     
  7. Does anyone know how to tell when the satellite pics were taken? I've located my house and can tell that the view is at least 1 1/2 years old.

    Thanks,

  8. Utel needs a little less than 3 years to scan our spaceship Earth... but some VERY popular places get their "treats" every 3-4 months.
     
  9. Panos,

    Thank you. I guess we are in a location here in the US that doesn't get it's picture taken very often.


    It is a very interesting site. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Steve, you can try Nasa World Wind which probably has more up to date pics, but it's a bit slow. More information and software download can be found here :
