Google has created a map of the Earth that is updated in real time


Dynamic World is able to determine the type of ground cover, providing information about which part of the landscape is occupied by water, vegetation, snow or ice, barren soil. The operation of the maps is based on deep machine learning algorithms and satellite photographs. With the help of these tools, the most detailed high-resolution map is formed, on which 10 m2 falls on one pixel. According to Google, the service receives more than 5,000 photos every day, due to which there is a constant update of information about the ground cover in real time. Anyone can get access to Dynamic World, but it will be especially relevant for specialists whose activities are related to monitoring natural disasters that affect the environment - forest fires, volcanic eruptions, floods, etc. Also, using this tool, you can observe less significant changes in the landscape of territories.
