Google revealed in a blog post that Google Earth now covers more than 98 percent of the world, and has captured 10 million miles of Street View imagery, which is distance enough to circle the globe 400 times. Google Earth also lets users browse more than 36 million square miles of satellite imagery. Google also discussed the techniques it uses to capture map imagery, it uses Street View cars equipped with cameras that can take photos from various angles while they're driving.
