Google Maps offers satellite photos
Check it out at Google Maps. One thing I noticed right away was that the satellite map of a facility I work with is much more up-to-date than the satellite photos I have hanging on my wall — there’s no link on the map page that directs me where to order a huge wall-size blow-up of the address picture. I happen to know that the images are coming from Google’s acquisition of Keyhole so I know where to go to get the images I want; it’s nice to see that Google’s done the obvious and leveraged their Keyhole data across their new mapping service.
