GOOGLE EARTH PLATFORM AS A GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM AND ITS CAPABILITIES IN THE STUDY OF DISCIPLINES OF SPECIALTY 193 "GEODESY AND LAND MANAGEMENT"
Keywords:Google Earth, geoinformation system, satellite images, platform capabilities, modern education
With the rapid development of information technology, there is a need to revise modern education and new approaches to learning. Nowadays, anyone can take advantage of access to Earth observation satellite data.
The development of satellite technologies is one of the main and pressing issues of the world. Scientists are increasingly analyzing satellite images in their work. So every year the demand in this direction increased, as did the very accuracy of satellite imagery. One of the platforms with free access to constantly updated satellite imagery is Google Earth and its more advanced versions of Google Earth Pro and Google Earth Engine, which we will consider for solving a certain number of problems.
Google Earth is an unusual platform that most people perceive as a virtual globe, but if we consider it as a whole, including extended versions, then from a virtual globe we get a full-fledged geographic information system.
The solution of some geodetic problems can be attributed to geoinformation analysis. In scientific sources, the topic of using Google Earth for geodetic purposes is very relevant. With the help of GIS, many issues are solved in the following industries related to 193 specialties, namely: land management; land cadastres; land inventory; mapping, including thematic; remote sensing; design and many other narrower issues.
The purpose of this article is to form a list of geodetic and design tasks that can be solved using the Google Earth platform and its improved versions Google Earth Pro, Google Earth Engine when studying the disciplines of specialty 193 "Geodesy and land management".
The article discusses modern approaches to learning, which will soon become a new reality for us. The most useful feature for research turned out to be time travel. With this feature, we can explore land changes since 1985, which is a hot topic in the discipline of land management.
The Google Earth platform is not a new project, it has evolved since 2005, constantly optimizing its capabilities with the addition of more interesting and useful features. A lot of their own maps have already been created through this platform, and large companies use Google Earth as a demonstration of their projects.
