UAV Photos of Burned Areas in San Diego in Google Earth

Just a quick post because I’m going to X PRIZE Cup. Pict Earth – a company which produces image processing technology for aerial photos with special skills in Google Earth – has started flying over some of the burned areas in San Diego. They have published some photos of burned regions in Google Earth. Definitely worth checking out. Thanks to PictEarth for bringing it to my attention.

  1. Thanks for the pointer. Added to .

  2. Me again sorry about the long error report but after a bit of thorough searching I found their error report pages. So no need to pass that on. Thanks

  3. Wow, the photos of the burned sections in San Diego are crazy. I wasn’t sure when the pictures of the burnt are were going to be uploaded. also has some pics posted showing burnt areas of the San Diego fires. Hopefully with time the scorched areas will start to sprout and bud and a rebirth can begin.
