Task 5: Option 2


Option 2: Find a app or a website that takes raw data and presents users with meaningful information.

Google Earth 

What data does the service collect?How does it present the information to users and why is it important?

Google Earth uses digital elevation model data collected by NASA’s Shuttle Radar Topography Mission. Google Earth uses similar technology to the widely used Maps product, but is more focused on geology and exploration than public transport and directions. Google is heavily marketing the tool as a way to raise awareness of climate change and other environmental issues. t combines aerial photography, satellite imagery, 3D topography, geographic data, and Street View into a tapestry you can explore. But Google Earth is much more than a 3D digital globe.
