Imagine a Live Video version of Google Earth

Imagine a live, 4k video version of Google Earth. The whole planet, all the time, live and to the minute. Speeding is now impossible, because traffic control is completely automated. Troop buildup and movement is monitored constantly, making surprise attacks very difficult to pull off. How does a major oil company control the story about their latest leak or explosion when everyone can watch the plumes spread as they happen? Even petty crimes become difficult.

Assuming (and it’s a big assumption) that the data isn’t being doctored. There’s no way to be certain anyone broadcasting data is telling the truth. If only we had a lot of individually controlled cameras all broadcasting a corroborating story. Oh, look! Project Tango. Hm.
