Clement Valla's Postcards from Google Earth blend 3D with 2D to blow minds

The satellite imagery used in Google Earth is captured in 2D. The terrain that it covers is rendered in 3D. Sometimes those disparate layers don’t line up, and sometimes those results can be quite compelling. Artist Clement Valla has collected some of the most striking examples in an online gallery called “Postcards from Google Earth, Bridges.” It’s 60 images from around the virtual globe, pictures that are occasionally janky, occasionally boring, but often quite moving in a Salvador Dali sort of way. Our favorite is above, but feel free to share yours in comments below.

postheadericon Google and NORAD’s Santa tracker is another victory for terrorists

Google and NORAD should rethink their annual Santa tracking service. Do we really want the evil doers to know the exact whereabouts of Mr. Claus on Google Maps and Earth from any PC or smartphone? A man so old that he’s ineligible for a driver’s license in some states yet pilots a 353,000-ton missile around the globe at a rate of about 650 miles per second? For shame.
