Google Earth product manager Gopal Shah taking to his blog wrote “Over the last decade, the collection has been witnessed by millions around the world as wallpapers for Android devices, screensavers for Chromecast and Google Home, and as an interactive exhibit in Google Earth’s Voyager. Today, we’re making our biggest update to Earth View by adding more than 1,000 new images to the collection.” He added, "Earth View has the power to elevate our minds from our tiny screens to outer space. My hope then is this funny, little project - along with Google Earth as a whole - moves us to care more deeply about this strange but kaleidoscopically beautiful planet.”

Google Earth is a computer program that renders a 3D representation of Earth, based primarily on satellite imagery. The program maps the Earth by superimposing satellite images, aerial photography, and GIS data onto a 3D globe, allowing users to see cities and landscapes from various angles.
