I’m Feeling Earthy: Earth Day trends and more

I’m Feeling Earthy: Earth Day trends and more.

It’s Earth Day—take a walk with us.

First, let’s dig into issues taking root in Search. Ahead of Earth Day. “Solar energy.” “Drought” and “endangered species” climbed in popularity this week. Meanwhile. People are looking for ways their own actions can make a positive impact. The top “how to recycle”. Searches were for plastic. Paper. Batteries. Plastic bags. And styrofoam. And around the world. Trending queries about Earth Day were “how many trees will be saved by recycling?”. And “which type of plastic is more friendly to the environment?”.

To explore some of the other searches that are blooming for Earth Day, take a look at our trends page.

In our corner of the world, Earth Day celebrations started on Google Earth’s first birthday (tweet at @googleearth with. #ImFeelingEarthy and see where it takes you!). The party continues today with a special tribute to Jane Goodall in today’s Doodle. And kids inspired by the Doodle can create their own Google logo. Thanks to our partnership with World Wildlife Fund. And while we’re feeling extra Earthy this week. The environment is important to our work all year long here’s what we’re doing for our operations. Our surroundings, our customers, and our community.

Bringing the solar system to life in 3D with NASA

Bringing the solar system to life in 3D with NASA.

The solar system has always been “teaching” us. You can see it in the drawings of the constellations in the Lascaux Caves. And the astronomy of the ancient world all the way up to now. When NASA is helping people around the world to get a closer look at the universe through explorations like the Artemis moon mission or the new James Webb Space images. Starting today. You can learn even more from the solar system with new experiences on Google Search and Google Arts & Culture. Thanks to NASA.

NASA and Google Arts & Culture have partnered to bring more than 60 3D models of planets. Moons and NASA spacecraft to Google Search. When you use Google Search to learn about these topics. Just click on the View in 3D button to understand the different elements of what you’re looking at even better. These 3D annotations will also be available for cells. Biological concepts (like skeletal systems). And other educational models on Search.

See the Earth and other planets in your space.

You can also dive deeper into these celestial bodies. And learn about the scientific instruments NASA uses to study them. A new Google Arts & Culture project lets you explore the solar system. With stories about diamond rain on Neptune. Gas giants and dwarf planets. Saturn’s moons. And NASA missions like the Parker Solar Probe or Landsat. NASA will even take you on a tour of the Hubble Telescope’s greatest images. Show you what makes the International Space Station so extraordinary. And help you discover how the Mars Perseverance Rover is revealing our place in the universe.

  • an image of the planets with the text “Our solar system”Do you know which is the smallest planet in the Solar System and the closest to the Sun? Learn more here.

The experience is also a way of helping inspire future students who may be considering careers as our next generation of explorers. As Kris Brown, NASA’s Deputy Associate Administrator for STEM Engagement notes. “Our nation’s future in air and space starts with inspiring students. And igniting a spark of curiosity in STEM in today’s classrooms. The ability to see our solar system. And join missions like the James Webb Space Telescope in 3D will give students a unique perspective of space and, hopefully, engage them in expanding their understanding of our home planet and our place in the universe. We hope these students will begin a journey of learning on STEM pathways toward building our next generation of explorers.”

So whether you’re a student learning about the solar system. Or just want to get up close to the moon. We are thrilled to help NASA put the planets in the palm of your hand.

Google Maps is turning 15! Celebrate with a new look and features

Google Maps is turning 15! Celebrate with a new look and features.

Google Maps is turning

In 2005, we set out to map the world. Since then we’ve pushed the limits of what a map can do: from helping you easily navigate from point A to B. To helping you explore and get things done in the world. With more than 1 billion people turning to Google Maps to see and explore the world, we’re celebrating our 15th birthday with a new look and product updates based on feedback from you.

A fresh look from the inside out

Starting today, you’ll see an updated Google Maps app for Android and iOS that gives you everything you need at your fingertips with five easy-to-access tabs: Explore, Commute. Saved. Contribute and Updates.

  • Explore: Looking for a place nearby to grab lunch. Enjoy live music or play arcade games? In the Explore tab. You’ll find information, ratings, reviews and more for about 200 million places around the world. Including local restaurants. Nearby attractions and city landmarks. 
  • Commute: Whether you’re traveling by car or public transit. The Commute tab is there to make sure you’re on the most efficient route. Set up your daily commute to get real-time traffic updates. Travel times and suggestions for alternative routes. 
  • Saved: People have saved more than 6.5 billion places on Google Maps from the new bakery across town to the famous restaurant on your upcoming vacation. Now you can view all of these spots in one convenient place. As well as find and organize plans for an upcoming trip and share recommendations based on places you’ve been. 
  • Contribute: Hundreds of millions of people each year contribute information that helps keep Google Maps up to date. With the new Contribute tab. You can easily share local knowledge, such as details about roads and addresses, missing places, business reviews and photos. Each contribution goes a long way in helping others learn about new places and decide what to do. 
  • Updates: The new Updates tab provides you with a feed of trending. Must-see spots from local experts and publishers. Like The Infatuation. In addition to discovering, saving and sharing recommendations with your network. You can also directly chat with businesses to get questions answered.

Our five tabs provide easier access to everything you need in Google Maps.

Google Maps is turning 15! Celebrate with a new look and features.

We’re also updating our look with a new Google Maps icon that reflects the evolution we’ve made mapping the world. It’s based on a key part of Google Maps since the very beginning the pin. And represents the shift we’ve made from getting you to your destination to also helping you discover new places and experiences.

And because we can’t resist a good birthday celebration. Keep an eye out for our celebratory party-themed car icon. Available for a limited time when you navigate with Google Maps.

Made for you, on the go

We’re constantly evolving to help you get around no matter how you choose to travel. Our new transit features in the Google Maps app help you stay informed when you’re taking public transportation.

Last year. We introduced crowdedness predictions to help you see how crowded your bus. Train or subway is likely to be based on past rides. To help you plan your travels. We’re adding new insights about your route from past riders, so you’ll be able to see important details. such as:. 

  • Temperature: For a more comfortable ride, check in advance if the temperature is considered by past riders as on the colder or warmer side. 
  • Accessibility:. If you have special needs or require additional support, you can identify public transit lines with staffed assistance. Accessible entrance and seating. Accessible stop-button or hi-visible LED. 
  • Women’s Section: In regions where transit systems have designated women’s sections or carriages. We’ll help surface this information along with whether other passengers abide by it. 
  • Security Onboard: Feel safer knowing if security monitoring is on board—whether that’s with a security guard present, installed security cameras or an available helpline.
  • Number of carriages available:. In Japan only, you can pick a route based on the number of carriages so that it increases your chances of getting a seat.

These useful bits of information come from past riders who’ve shared their experiences. And will appear alongside public transit routes when available. To help future riders. You can answer a short survey within Google Maps about your experience on recent trips. We’ll start rolling this out globally in March, with availability varying by region and municipal transportation agency.

New trip attributes help you make informed decisions about your travel plans.

A sense of direction

Last year. We introduced Live View to help you quickly decide which way to go when you start a walking route with Google Maps. By combining Street View’s real-world imagery, machine learning and smartphone sensors. Live View in Google Maps shows you your surroundings with the directions overlaid in augmented reality. 

Over the coming months. We’ll be expanding Live View and testing new capabilities. Starting with better assistance whenever you’re searching for a place. You’ll be able to quickly see how far away and in which direction a place is.

Live View will soon help you get oriented in the right direction in new ways.

A big thank you to everyone for placing your trust in us and for being with us on this wild ride over the last 15 years. See you out there on the journey!.
