NASA and Google announced the release of a new Mars mode in Google Earth that brings to everyone's desktop a high-resolution, three-dimensional view of the Red Planet. Besides providing a rich, immersive 3D view of Mars that will aid public understanding of Mars science, the new mode, Google Mars 3D, also gives researchers a platform for sharing data similar to what Google Earth provides for Earth scientists.
The mode enables users to fly virtually through enormous canyons and scale huge mountains on Mars that are much larger than any found on Earth. Users also can explore the Red Planet through the eyes of the Mars rovers and other Mars missions, providing a unique perspective of the entire planet.
Users can see some of the latest satellite imagery from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and other probes orbiting the Red Planet. Viewers can learn about new discoveries and explore indexes of available Mars imagery. The new Mars mode also allows users to add their own 3D content to the Mars map to share with the world.
The announcement is the latest benefit from a Space Act Agreement NASA's Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif., signed with Google in November 2006. Under its terms, NASA and Google agreed to collaborate to make NASA's data sets available to the world.
NASA Ames, along with its partners at Google, Carnegie Mellon University, SETI, and other institutions, helped produce the data to make this possible. Google's innovative search technologies connect millions of people around the world with information every day. Google is headquartered close to Ames in Silicon Valley with offices throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia.
Now a day's more and more new techniques are come every day, but the Greece country has barred Google from taking pictures in the country for Google's Street View Web-based service.
The DPA (Data Protection Authority) of Greece has ordered to Google in future Google will not allow to taking any more pictures on the streets of our country for the service of Google Street View. And also the DPA of Greek asked to Google, we want more information about the photos taken from our country for the service of Google Street View.
The Google Street View photographs are currently available for many countries, including US, UK, Italy, New Zealand, Netherlands, Japan, France, Australia and Spain. The Google's Street View Web-Based Service used for many things like it allows finding restaurants, shops. And also allows taking virtual walks, any other point of interest.
Google Finance is a website started on March 21, 2006 by Google. The service features business and enterprise banner for many corporations with their financial decisions and major news events. Stock information is available, as are Adobe Flash-based stock price charts. The site also combined Google News and Google Blog Search articles about each corporation, though links are not screened and often deemed unreliable. Google added advertising to its finance page on November 18, 2008. Until this time, it was free of advertisements.
Google commence a restored version of their finance site on December 12, 2006, featuring a new homepage design which lets users see currency information, sector performance for the U.S. market and a listing of top market movers along with the relevant and important news of the day. A top movers section was also added, based on popularity unwavering by Google Trends. The upgrade also featured charts containing up to 40 years of data for U.S. stocks, and richer portfolio options. Another update brought real-time ticker updates for stocks to the site, as both NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange partnered with Google in June 2008.
A Google Sitemap is an easy XML document that lists all the pages in your website, but the Google Sitemaps program is really much more vital than that. In fact, the Sitemaps program provides a little glance inside Google's mind - and it can tell you a lot about what Google thinks of your website!
Why Should You Use Google Sitemaps?...
Until Google Sitemaps was released in the summer of 2005, optimizing a site for Google was a deduction game at best. A website's page might be erased from the index, and the Webmaster had no thought why. Otherwise, a site's content could be scanned, but because of the habit of the algorithm, the only pages that would rank well might be the "About Us" page, or the company's press releases.
As webmasters we were at the whim of Googlebot, the apparently arbitrary algorithmic kingmaker that could make or break a website overnight through shifts in search engine positioning. There was no way to communicate with Google about a website - either to understand what was wrong with it, or to tell Google when something had been restructured.
That all changed about a year ago when Google released Sitemaps, but the program really became useful in February of 2006 when Google modernized it with a couple new tools.
So, what exactly is the Google Sitemaps program, and how can you use it to progress the position of your website? Well, there are essentially two reasons to use Google Sitemaps:
1. Sitemaps provide you with a way to tell Google valuable information about your website.
2. You can use Sitemaps to learn what Google thinks about your website.
Google AdSense is getting rid of its video units feature, which permits publishers to show You Tube content and video ads on their pages. Google says that by the end of April, the feature will be fully remove for existing AdSense clients and that new clients of the revenue sharing ad program will no longer be given the option to place video ads on their pages during the program. Publishers can still present video content on their pages by pulling drive in codes directly from You Tube.
Obviously, Google says it remove the video ads because of poor performance. It is difficult to form out a sustainable ad model for video, which is why pre-rolls remain more common. But the problem with video ads may not be the ad unit itself but but the essential content. Brand advertisers do not want their names connected with random words spoken in videos. You simply cannot competently and every time target ads based on three words in a video. For instance, if someone is watching a clip of "Snakes on a Plane," its almost certainly not the best place to put a travel ad. And search marketers can find better places to put related ads.
It appears this latest declaration is part of a budding trend of Google cleaver programs in AdSense. Google lately drag the plug on its Google Radio Ads and was looking to sell off its Google Radio Automation software business. That news came less than a month after Google determined to bail on selling print ads. We extreme dislike to say we told you so but we saw the script on the wall about addition video ads to AdSense awhile ago.
