Goya’s Art Up Close and Personal: Explore the Prado Museum with Google Earth
March 10, 2009By: Mary Winston Nicklin
Armchair travelers will be thrilled to learn about the latest 3D tours accessible on Google Earth. You don't have to buy a ticket to Madrid to check out the treasures from the Prado Museum. Delve deeply into the Prado's collection with Google Earth technology:
In Google Earth, you can get close enough to examine a painter's brushstrokes or the craquelure on the varnish of a painting. The images of these works are about 14,000 million pixels, 1,400 times more detailled than the image a 10 megapixel digital camera would take. In addition, you'll be able to see a spectacular 3D reproduction of the museum.
