Can any one find visible wild animals in africa ?
Re: Wild Animal in Africa (Challenge) grizle 9/28/05 6:39 AM
You mean like these ones?
Re: Wild Animal in Africa (Challenge) Khalido_m 9/28/05 7:29 AM
Yas and No.
I meant animals (difficult) or animal herds (giraffe, elephant, gnu ...) but not airplane pictures.
Re: Wild Animal in Africa (Challenge) BodoRasler 9/28/05 8:51 AM
excellent! How didi you do this? Overlay?
Re: Wild Animal in Africa (Challenge) grizle 9/29/05 5:49 AM
Wonderful isn't it, but I can't lay claim to it - its the National Geographic layer. There are about 500 of these high-res photos dotted around Africa and fully integrated into Google Earth. Turn on the National Geographic Layer to pinpoint where they are.
Re: Wild Animal in Africa (Challenge) grizle 9/29/05 5:54 AM
I suspect this isn't quite what you meant either, but here are a couple of giraffes in LA Zoo. (Actually this is also an aerial photo too rather than a satellite image).
Re: Wild Animal in Africa (Challenge) grizle 9/29/05 6:10 AM
Heres a shot of London zoo giraffe enclosure which is a satellite image. Now there's no way that you could identify the blobs as giraffe, but they are the same size as the giraffes in LA.

I doubt that any animal could be positively identified from space at this resolution, and the chance of higher resolution shots of the African plains being published is not likely
Re: Wild Animal in Africa (Challenge) Khalido_m 9/30/05 6:46 AM
Bravo for the location.
I know that It is impossible to identify animals from space at this resolution
But I think It's possible to locate animal herds inAfrica.
I keep searching
Re: Wild Animal in Africa (Challenge) grizle 9/30/05 8:12 AM
Good luck. Theres a lot of high res area around Jo'burg but I don't know if they cover any game parks.

This combines the above posts, and adds a few more. I've expanded the definition to include all animals.

I've put the placemark out of the way, so that you get more aesthetically pleasing images, and tried to find the true verticals so that animals don't look upside down.

I'll continue to add to this file, when I have been hunting again, and will include others in this thread when posted.

Edit: I've added some more, and the donkeys have become donkeys/mules, because I can't tell the difference.

Edit 2005-10-12: There are a couple of new entries, and I've culled one or two that were too small to be identified, or that just didn't make for an interesting view.

Hey Khalido Mon Frère,

On n'arrête pas de chercher après des animaux sauvages...
Le message de Reggie98 est très intéressant, tu l'as déja téléchargé?
http://bbs.keyhole.com/ubb/download.php?Number=138835

Salutations de la Belgique...
Re: Wild Animal in Africa (Challenge) roparis 10/11/05 12:47 AM
Khalido_m,

Except for the L.A. giraffes, these are all DUPLICATES. See:http://bbs.keyhole.com/ubb/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/125045/an/0/page/0#125045
and http://bbs.keyhole.com/ubb/download.php?Number=138835

Now Puzzle has just tripled the placemarks by asking everyone to download the second link. That's how the BBS Layer gets clogged with duplicates. See the Suppoert forums.

Just wanted to let you know I have written a story about your nice collection of animals at the Google Earth Blog. Check out the story here .

Re: Animals in Africa - snapshots Puzzle 10/11/05 8:12 AM
Woaow Frank, your blog is great and I've learned a lot on it, thanks.
Roparis, some of Reggie's placemarks are well LusoNomad's duplicates, but updated and arranged.
And don't worry for the link I (and you !!!) posted, they won't appear 3 nor 4 times...
Re: Wild Animal in Africa (Challenge) Khalido_m 10/12/05 12:42 AM
Salut Puzzle,

Bien sûr que je l'ai téléchargé, toutefois je continue de chercher dans des zones low Rez des troupeaux d'animaux.
Exemple les gnou, ils se déplacent par des milliers. Ils devraient être visible.

Hi ! I am a new user of this communtity, but an old one of Google Earth.
THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL

see birds unidentified


really good

See my blog : www.shysblog.blogspot.com
Re: Animals in Africa - snapshots Reggie98 10/12/05 2:34 PM
Thanks for the write up, Frank.

The list is still growing, though I am toying with the idea of making it a good list, rather than a complete list.

In the process of creating it, I have been putting placemarks on the other photos where there were no discernable animals. These, too, make a great slideshow, and at some stage I hope label and sort them by their wow-factor.

Credit should, of course, be reserved for Michael Fay and National Geographic for the wonderful photos now available on Google Earth. I enjoy looking at good photos.

Are there any new founding of visible wild animals in africa ?
Re: Wild Animal in Africa (Challenge) MellouliTaha 4/30/06 2:21 PM
comment tu fais pour voir les parties qui sont censurées ou meme invisible (par exemple SFAX ou MONASTIR) ou la MARSA
Re: Wild Animal in Africa (Challenge) bartekz89 5/9/06 6:44 AM
Reggie - cool animals. you've done very good job! thanks.
Found ! Satellite photos of wild elephants Nic_Roets 6/13/06 4:21 AM
Skukuza, South Africa and other parts of the Kruger National Park now has highres satellite photos. It was taken during the dry season, so it's easy.
Re: Found ! Satellite photos of wild elephants Enzima 6/23/06 11:07 AM
I'm sorry... a very stupid question...
Why when I open your bookmarks I can see a rectangle of very high definition with the object in question, and normally I can't see nothing at that def?
Thank you!
Re: Rectangles of high resolution Nic_Roets 6/23/06 11:33 AM
Some of my "bookmarks" correspond to photos I've taken with my digital camera. In other words, I have physically visited the location. Those bookmarks will have the number assigned by my camera as their title (DCP_xxxx for my old camera and 101_xxxx for my Kodak C360). When you open them, you'll see a thumbnail image and when you click on the thumbnail, my online gallery will open where you can see the exact time and date the photograph was taken. These bookmarks were all generated using my software

I hope this is what you are referring to.

B.t.w. I've made a mistake. Those satellite photos are of cars and not of wild elephants. But I think we just need to keep on looking near Skukuza. If anyone spot elephants and don't want to register with keyhole, email me at nro...@gmail.com and I'll publish it.
Re: Wild Animal in Africa (Challenge) Hippos8675309 2/24/07 12:39 PM
I don't know how to find them. When I zoom in really close, it's just all blurry. How can I get it so it's not all blurry and I can find really cool photos of things that I am going to work with when I am older. (Those are animals)
Thanks
Re: Reptiles of the Crocodile persuasion? Frank4 3/8/07 5:53 PM
This looks like it could be a gator/crocodile. Anyone else agree?

It appears to be about the right length - 8 feet or so.

Re: Reptiles of the Crocodile persuasion? Hill 3/9/07 1:43 PM
It looks to me to be the same as the other green vegetation nearby which looks like it has been knocked flat by flooding. But there is no doubt a great flock of birds in this unmarked NGS photo.

They seem to be crocodiles.
Alligators don not live in africa.
More animals not in the collection Frank4 3/10/08 12:47 PM
Some time ago I found a bunch of Megaflyover images with animals which were not in the collection. These came from a batch of Megaflyover images which are not marked with the layer (read more in this post).

The attached placemark collection shows a bunch of new animals which can be added to Reggie98's collection of categorized animals.
Re: More animals not in the collection Frank4 3/11/08 7:02 PM
Another good animal to add to the collection - check out this great shot of a crocodile near some hippos which was found by Felippo.
