Google Geonews: Google Glass Navigation Review, 29-years Satellite Imagery Timelapse, and more

Here's the recent Google-related geonews.

From official sources:

  • Google participated to TIME's new Timelapse Project, providing an interactive time-lapse satellite imagery map for the 29 last years  - this was also discussed over Slashdot
  • Google also shares a short entry named Bridging the gaps with Street View
  • Here's was to expect later this week from Behind the Map at Google I/O
  • A week left now, An update on the JavaScript Maps API v2 deprecation

From other sources:

  • The Google Earth Android app got a nice update, including native Street View support
  • Slashdot discussed a story named Tesla's Elon Musk Talks With Google About Self-Driving Cars
  • Unsurprisingly, there was new imagery to Google Earth

Specifically on Google Glass Project:

  • Let's start with a discussion named Google Glass Hands-On: Brimming With Potential, Dangerous While Driving
  • APB links to a Google Glass Navigation Review, and it's pretty positive
  • Someone had to ask, Is Google Glass Too Nerdy For the Mainstream?
  • This will likely improve, but for now Google Glass Is the Future — and the Future Has Awful Battery Life
  • And yes, Google Glass will work with iPhones too
