Hey efizzer,

Looks cool, I'll have to check this out. I have used Google Maps before with satelite imagery, but this looks awesome.

Thanks,

Does anyone know how old the pictures are? I have deduced that they are probably from 1 year to 6 months after 9-11, but I'm not sure. I just know that the neighborhood my house is in is about 1/4 built, and construction is about 7 houses away from mine.

I also read it needs a fast internet service which I do not have. Man I wish I could test it out! How is it? Can you zoom into your house?

This is a very nice program. What is even better is the file you can download so you can access it form your desktop, however you need a broadband connection.

Thought i'd bump this up for some of the newer members who may not have heard of it, some of the images in my area of the UK are about 4-5 years old, still quite impressive though.I can actually see my car parked outside my house, and the old shed which no longer exists.(Don't expect to see what's on your washing line though :thumbsup:

I downloaded this thing a while ago to my box at NCSU. It's really cool. I play around with it when i'm bored, and it's especially useful if i'm looking for directions for a place i've never been to before. It's a lot better than a 2d map, IMO.

The only downside though is that i can't zoom in on my house back in Goldsboro. If you don't live in a relatively large/major city, you can't get very close. However, if i zoom in on my dorm in Raleigh, i can see the air-conditioning units.... insane

It is an impressive resource but little use to me since most of Australia appears to be a grey/brown smear. Hopefully oneday it will include a bit more of the planet.
