If anyone has not tried it yet, goto

It is fun to compare Heli AP shots with the satellite version.

Surprizing detail available and Google has made it easy to manouver around.

Find area with the "map" version then hit the "satellite" version. I find it almost impossible to find anything without the streets labelled

Has anyone tried the keyhole.com 7 day free trial? That thing is amazing! You can navigate around the globe and it almost gives you the impression that you’re flying. You can even get oblique angles.

Google Maps.....

Not a bad site.....

Has anyone noticed that the location of a address while in Sat view is not accurate ??

For example, type in your home address and then go to satelite view.....

You'll see your house location (according to them) will be up the road somewhere from your actual house.....Not a big deal but I wonder why they can't get that part right.....???

I subscribed to the basic Keyhole version a few months ago. Navigation is pretty slow even on a screaming fast PC with broadband, but the images are higher resolution than what you see in the Google maps.

Google recently acquired Keyhole, so they probably can't offer their high-res maps for free and still justify the annual subscription price of Keyhole.
