Stefan at Ogle Earth point out a fascinating article about what really makes Google Earth tick. It’s written by Avi Bar-Ze’ev, who helped develop Google Earth back when it was still known as Keyhole. It’s a very tech-heavy article about how you go from having terabytes worth of imagery to then rendering it all on a 3D globe. Good stuff.
