Imagine that you want to download a small piece of the map of Google Maps and at the end you end up downloading everything? Although many people do not realize, this service takes too much space in our smartphones. So we here give you the reference data of how much weighs each block on the device.
According to Google Earth Blog, the size of the 3D images that give shape and color to the land covers an area of approximately 524.000 square kilometers, and each square kilometer weighs as minimum 2 GB. This gives us a total of 1024 TB for 3D images.
It occupies not only GB on your smartphone, but that you can even have to worry about reaching TB.
If you only want the aerial images from Google Maps, download it all ends of 179 TB while the historic and exclusive images occupy a total of 1618 TB. In conclusion, the data are thus:
All this adds 3017 terabytes, about 3 petabytes. Taking into account that a 1 TB hard drive costs about $60, we would need more than to download all of Google Earth.
