3280+ Football Teams and Stadiums Around the World

Football Soccer Stadiums in Google EarthA couple of months ago I wrote about a fan-collected database of information provided in the form of placemarks for Google Earth which showed 1650+ football (aka Soccer) stadiums from around the world. In the last two months, they have greatly improved not only the quantity, but also the quality of information on football teams and stadiums. You can download the collection now, and you can view the thread of discussions at the GEC here.
The information is organized by leagues, by countries, and teams. Placemarks use the flag of the country for their icons, and the placemarks may contain photos of the stadium, logos of the teams/league, and links to information about the stadium and/or teams. By the way, when I last reported the file had been downloaded 3000 times, now it’s been downloaded over 9000 times. This is still the largest fan-collected GE information I’ve seen. There must be a few football fans out there.

  1. Can anyone tell me if the pictures Google Earth uses are actually from the sattelite owned by Google?
    One more question. Besides security concerns, what other factors are considered when determining what resolution is used for any specific area?

  2. The images is not owned by Google.
    The owner is written in white down at the bottom of the screen
    Btw it is usually NASA 😉
