I especially want to know how those pictures were taken? It must have taken a very very long time to take all of them!

    Google actually purchased Keyhole and turned their product into what's now Google Earth.

    Much of the imagery was taken by satellites, while some was also taken from aircraft.

    The street-level imagery was taken by vehicles that drive around on streets, taking 360-degree photos.
