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.

While it will be a long time before we see a live version of Google Earth, as Frank recently explained, there are some places where small scale real-time imagery is starting to come out.

The most recent example is in Compton, California, where they can monitor a 25 square mile area for six hours at a time thanks to a company called Persistent Surveillance Systems(PSS).

We’ve talked about Meograph a variety of times over the past few years. They have an excellent tool that combines Google Earth with storytelling, and it can be a great way to supplement a story with geographic context.

The design of the site has always been solid, but their latest refresh really makes it much better. The new design is much more visual, intuitive, and mobile friendly in an effort to make consumer content creation for brands even easier.

Three years ago we told you about the effort to rebuild L’Aquila in 3D following a major earthquake in 2009. Graziano Di Crescenzo has an Italian blog about Google Earth and is very passionate about the product.
