Ultra high resolution art work on Google Earth

Posted by rosiemacalpine on September 30, 2009

This one has been available for a while, but it is well worth a look.

Open up Google Earth. In the ‘Fly To’ box, type ‘Museo del Prado’ and click on the magnifying glass.

You will now fly off to the ‘Museo Nacional de Prado’ in Spain.

Zoom in until you can click on the ‘Masterpieces’ link at the front door of the museum. Click on this button.

Click on a picture to see it in high resolution. I’ve chosen ‘Emperor Carlos V on horseback’. Click on the picture to fly inside the museum.

Then zoom in on the picture to see incredible detail. Below is a close up of the Emperor’s face. Notice the cracks in the canvas – amazing!

Remember that if you have an ActivBoard by Promethean, you can use the right click button on your pen to zoom in and out in Google Earth.
