This program has been out for a while but I only found out about it this week and I haven't been able to get of it. Its just so much fun, especially for a geographical nerd like me. It basically allows you to have a look at any part of the planet as though you had control of a satellite.

Its free and heaps of fun trying to find your street or famous locations and the quality in some places is just amazing.

Its great to have a look at the United States cause extra features are available that dont work in other countries like "buildings" which gives you a 3D veiw of the cities like Manhattan.

I was looking for the prison in Guantánamo Bay but couldn't locate it exactly. Though I did find the bay itself. I recommend that everyone have a go at this, you can download it here .

If you have already had a go at this what did you think?

It's a fun program but it pissed me off that they have nothing for most parts of Connecticut but you can see everything of a little hick town called Granby in Massachusetts...

They show New London in CT which I thought was pretty small. I have a friend that lives near the light house and it was cool that they had that much detail there.
If anyone should be pissed off it should be africans who have like no coverage. But then again how many africans have the interent.

heh, ud be suprised.
tho i think the coverage is meant for (as u rightly used it) people trying to find out information about somewhere else.
cos if u did need to find out something locally, ur phonebook would have the answers.

nice post icey.

Well there are parts of Africa that are generously covered like parts of Cairo and South Africa which would have a denser population of users. I can already see this getting bigger and bigger as time continues, I was suprised when I found this of how little people knew about it.

Google Earth is generally new, Google bought the technology only a few years ago...

I havent got around to using it yet, though in my local paper there was a big article about it because the goverment is pissed that people can view Garden Island on it (Western Australian Naval Base) and are scared that "terrorists" can use the images to plan and attack the base.

They want it removed from Google Earth, or some crap. heh.

If the future was tomorrow then that day passed yesterday. Google has added new layers to its sattlelight images of planet Earth. These include:

live web cams
statistics on population and crime
your local EVERYTHING (hospitals, schools, Chinese restruant)
My most loved new feature is the National Geographic links in Africa. It has also updated some areas with new sat coverage and named roads in Canada.

When they said they wanted information accessible at the click of a button I had no idea it would be this big.

Here's a funny thing to try out. Go to MSN's virtual maps and look up "Infinite Loop, Cupertino CA." Now, go to google and look it up. What's different when looking in satellite view? According to MSN, the headquarters of Apple doesn't exist.
