Please someone should enlighten me.I know tech has advanced at a mind buggling quantum pace.but I don't really understand how a satellite can take such a clear video coverage of places on the earth's surface like the one op just posted.
I'm particularly interested in the second pics cos it seemed to me like the camera(or whatever) was not taken by something that was taken from high above but rather on ground level.
I wish for an answer.please make my wish come through.

Never stop being curious and wanting to know, it will take you places .
You are correct in your assumptions, Google Street view pictures and 3D images are taken primarily with Google Cars: these have advanced camera mounted on their roofs to capture both still and 3D images, they simply drive following Mapped routes and GPS locations while the cameras work and they collate the information.
This matches your assumption that they were taken at street level....
In other areas that are secluded, they use helmet mounted cameras on Bikers and handheld high tripods for areas completely inaccessible or off limits to transports such as monuments, parks, courseways etc...
In advanced climes, they may utilize fixed CCTV gigs in collaboration with local authorities....
So keep your eyes peeled....
You might see an odd car with Google Maps emblazoned on its side, that's the real deal...
