From an article by David Nield at Science Alert:

You might be used to peering down at your street on Google Maps, but what if those satellite photographs were completely up to date – maybe even just a few hours old?

That’s the plan of Japanese imaging company Axelspace, which is launching 50 new satellites to take on the huge task of capturing an Earth selfie every 24 hours. They hope the new technology will find use in everything from tracking crop growth to checking long-distance pipelines.
