Land Lines – Drawing satellite imagery through gesture

Created by Zach Lieberman in collaboration with Google's Data Arts team, Land Lines is an experiment that lets you explore Google Earth satellite imagery through gesture. “Draw” to find satellite images that match your every line; “Drag” to create an infinite line of connected rivers, highways and coastlines.

Satellite images provide a wealth of visual data from which we can visualize in interesting ways. Using a combination of machine learning, optimized algorithms, and graphics card power, the experiment is able to run efficiently on your phone’s web browser without a need for backend servers.
