Yeah.. actually mapquest.com has the arial photo option from GlobeExplorer. I love it. I was able to zoom in on my old apartment in TX and see the swimming pool!

It was actually useful when we were looking for a house. You can plug in the address and actually see if the property is next door to a toxic waste dump or something before you actually drive across town to look at it.

My subdivision doesn't exist yet on the picture I found, and it's about 2 years old now. I wonder how old the pictures are.

Cool nevertheless though, it found the address right away!

Very cool. Found my house, but not too impressed with the photo quality. If I were to buy one of these prints, I hope it is better then what they show on the web site.

i'm not sure if some of the images are more recent than others, but the picture i checked is at least 10 years old.

VERY USEFUL in this regard! When looking for houses, I and several other people I know have used satellite images to make certain the land we were buying had houses or the like surrounding it, and wasn't just vacant and begging for a huge strip mall or the like.

Now that's a trip, literally! Thanks for the link, Scott. I'll have some fun with that! I already pulled up my neighborhood. Wild stuff!

Philip, not all pictures are old. I put in 1 World Trade Center in New York, and you can clearly see ground zero. :frowning: I did this because I noticed that the picture of my office building is old, as it shows the building under construction. The building opened in December 2000. Some views are old, some aren't.

Philip, I've never checked terraserver.com. Thanks for the link. I'll definitely check it out.
