This article brings to mind mind the chorus from an old Alan Parsons Project song: “I am the eye in the sky, looking at you”. A new super high resolution satellite available to Google truly makes Google the eye in the sky. The GeoEye-1 is the world’s highest-resolution commercial satellite. Using technology previously only available to spy agencies like the CIA, the article states that the satellite can zoom in with enough resolution to capture the detail of a baseball diamond. While this brings a number of practical improvements to existing technologies such as Real Estate mapping, it also raises some interesting privacy concerns. Who’s going to be looking at high resolution photographs of you while you float around in your backyard pool? I guess from now on it will be best to save those types of activities for cloudy days. 🙂
