Land Lines

Land Lines is an experiment that lets you explore Google Earth satellite imagery through gesture. You can “Draw” a line to find a satellite image that matches it; Or you can “Drag” to create an infinite line of connected rivers,coastlines and highways .

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.
