Google reveals just how much of the world it’s mapped with Street View and Earth

  Google reveals just how much of the world it’s mapped with Street View and Earth 10 million miles of Street View imagesThat Google Earth number is particularly impressive: Google says that it now covers 98 percent of the places in the world where people live. And the 10 million miles of Street View imagery puts Google miles ahead of competitors like Apple, which has just started to include similar street-level photography in Apple Maps with the release of iOS 13 this year. But Apple has a long way to go before it catches up to Google’s millions of miles.

Steffen Schwarz is a 32-year-old part-time farmer in Germany who’s preparing to marry his fiancee in June. The pair’s impending nuptials come as a result of a pretty epic marriage proposal Schwarz extended last May — a proposal that’s garnering headlines today for a pretty incredible reason.

That’s because Schwarz used a corn-planting machine in a way that left gaps in his field in the central-Germany community of Huettenberg. Those gaps spelled out the proposal, in German: “Will you marry me?” He prodded his girlfriend to fly a drone over the field, and then voila. The question thus popped, she enthusiastically told him yes. But what makes the proposal so memorable is that it actually doesn’t stop there.

His proposal was so massive that it actually got picked up via Google Maps, such that if you click this link right now, you should be able to see the field and the question spelled out in big letters that are easily visible from the sky.

According to the BBC, Schwarz had no idea Google’s mapping service had picked up an image of his proposal — and the fact that it’s now being seen around the world makes this story all the more romantic as we head into Valentine’s Day on Friday. His message, which you can see above, was prepared using a seeding machine and extends almost the whole length of his nearly five-acre field. Even so, his girlfriend actually didn’t see the message at first after sending up the drone.

It seems that Schwarz had concocted a reason for her to fly it — that he’d apparently seen wild boars in the field, necessitating a drone flight to check it out.

“At first she couldn’t see (the message) because the drone wasn’t flying high enough,” Schwarz told local media. “But when she realised, she said yes immediately.” Moreover, in a fitting coda to this story, the couple say they may get out the drone again in June. To use it for wedding photos, of course.
