    Click the satallite button on the upper right. Not the best detail for rural areas, but cities are great.

    that really is amazing... the satellite image has my gf's house on it, but google's marker is on the other side of the road

    some of the images are too low-quality to be of much use (you can't even zoom in too closely on them) but that's probably because at the time they were taken, there wasn't much there...

    few months I made a webapp in c# that connected to the MS terra server and did pretty much the same thing

    the satalite pics where grayscale though.

    zoom inhere to see my school. There are two over 20 story buildings that look tiny....only the shadows they cast show their true size.

    They were build after WW2 and during cold war; the architect designed them so that they seem small from a plane (so they wouldn't be potential targets) he kind of forgot about dun and shadows me thinks....anyways, the building are skinnier on the first half, and fatter on the top: university hall

    Interesting... I could make out the roads and stuff where I live, but they didn't have close-ups, and I live in a fairly big city outside of DC.

    I took a screenshot of my house, but I couldn't attach it because it was a little bigger than 640X480. Is there any way we can get that bumped up to something a little bigger? 800X600 would be fine, I think.

    if you don't mind us knowing where you live, you can link us... or you can just zoom in manually to your house and send us that link...

    So... I wonder how long it will take them to bring everything else up? And I wonder how often new images will be taken? Or how recent the current ones are?
