Question: How does Google Maps get aerial pictures?

The satellite and aerial images in Google Earth are taken by cameras on satellites and aircraft, which collect each image at a specific date and time.

Is Google Maps satellite or aerial?

Google Maps satellite view is a top-down or birds-eye view; most of the high-resolution imagery of cities is aerial photography taken from aircraft flying at 800 to 1,500 feet (240 to 460 m), while most other imagery is from satellites.
