Picture This: A stitch in time…

Berlin-based artist, Daniel Schwarz, has revealed several instances of interesting incongruities in Google’s images of the Earth’s surface. The artist posted a collection of satellite images that have been gathered from different points in time and under different weather conditions which Google had stitched together. When Google updates its maps, it sources images for a given location from various periods in time. The images load automatically, on a grid, without the benefit of a discerning human eye. Schwarz, though, admits that Google may have replaced these images by now with more suitable ones. “Due to their source and its constant flow of actualisations, the chosen glitches are potentially nonexistent, and replaced by more recent photos,” he says.
