Best Answer

From the aerial or satellite imagery in Google Earth you can rarely make out people. Sometimes you make out a person's outline, but often it's blurry -- resolution is not high enough.

However, if you enter 'Street View' in Google Earth or Google Maps you can see people. In fact, the resolution is so clear that the faces are purposely blurred for privacy reasons. Google uses advanced blurring algorithms to identify faces and blur just the faces (as well as license plates) in the photograph to prevent identification.

How come you can not see people in the google satellite images or maps?

The satellite and aerial imagery seen in Google Earth and Google Maps are from such a high altitude that you can see cars but people are too small to see clearly. However, Google's Street View imagery does allow you to see people and Google uses automatic blurring techniques on faces to prevent identification. Just enable the street view mode on any major city, and you'll see people.

Can you see someone on Google Earth?

Google blurs people's faces and licenses plates in the imagery you can see in Google Earth and Google Maps. These steps help to protect the privacy and anonymity of individuals when images are collected. Google also has a self-reporting process for users to request further blurring if they or someone is else is recognizable.
