Project Dooble Earth

The possibilities that Google Earth offers are virtually limitless. I have been trying to put together a super high resolution image of key locations in Dubai from several low resolution images available from the application.

It took around 4 hours and more than 40 screen resolution images to create this high resolution satellite picture of Sheikh Zayed Road area which can be printed as a 1 metre wide poster. At this rate, I would need roughly 130 man-hours, a 17x 17 m printing area and lots of ink to complete Project Dooble Earth - A Super High Resolution image of the whole of Dubai. That is if I will be able to keep my sanity and my disc intact after what I increasingly suspect to be a rather pointless and tedious task. But I have not given up yet.

To have a closer look, you can download the actual high resolution image here(8mb).
