How to become a Google Imagery Partner

We get emails from time to time from users that would like to submit their own imagery to Google Earth. As Frank mentioned a few weeks ago, Google has a program called the “Imagery Partner Program” to help communities who want to submit their own aerial (or satellite) imagery of their community to Google for inclusion in the maps.

You can use this program to send in your own imagery (whether pre-existing, or have new imagery taken) and submit it through this program. In addition, you can submit older imagery and it will be added to the historical imagery layer, so submitting multiple instances over time is encouraged.

To get started, read the details on Google’s Imagery Partner Program page. If you submit noteworthy imagery that ends up in Google Earth, contact us and let us know about it, and perhaps we can feature it in a future post.
