We introduce methods for augmenting aerial visualizations of Earth (from services like Google Earth or Microsoft Virtual Earth) with dynamic information obtained from videos. Our goal is to make Augmented Aerial Earth Maps that visualize an alive and dynamic scene within a city. We propose different approaches for analyzing videos of cities with pedestrians and cars, under differing conditions and then created augmented Aerial Earth Maps (AEMs) with live and dynamic information. We further extend our visualizations to include analysis of natural phenomenon (specifically clouds) and add this information to the AEMs adding to the visual reality.
