Google Earth Engine
https://earthengine.google.org/#intro
Google Earth Engine brings together the world's satellite imagery—trillions of scientific measurements dating back more than 25 years—and makes it available online with tools for scientists, independent researchers, and nations to mine this massive warehouse of data to detect changes, map trends and quantify differences to the earth's surface.
Using this new tool, we've already begun helping scientists develop applications for detecting deforestation and mapping land use trends, and have started working with individual countries to develop their own applications.

Google Earth : Juicy Geography
Picture the classroom with a beautiful 3D globe projected onto a whiteboard. The subject is settlement and the place is Brazil. The lesson is focused on the location of shanty towns. The camera flies to the Dona Marta favela, Rio de Janeiro
Teaching ideas : The simplest way to start using Google Earth in the classroom is to add your school as a placemark in the My Places folder. Create a second folder for teaching locations. Fly to each place mentioned in a lesson!
