Aerial/satellite pictures of your house?
    #3722659 - 02/03/05 01:54 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I'm not neccessarily sure this is the right forum to post this in, but I figured it perhaps has some minor political implications:

http://terraserver.microsoft.com/advfind.aspx

If you go to that site, and type in your address you may find that there is a satellite photo of your house. I live in a somewhat rural area, and was really surprised to find an aerial photo of my house.

:shocked:Shit! I just noticed I need to plant more trees around my house.
It's scary to think that that is what they are showing us.  I wonder what the resolution of those top secret top of the line satelites is?

Look at the map, then click on the aerial view.

Ummm, 8 years ago they could read the headline of a newspapper! Now there are comercial satellites that can do that.

The KeyHole satellite (USA 129 launched on Dec 20, 1996) can take optical images (unlike it's three sisters, the radar-imaging Lacrosse satellites) and is widely reputed to be able to discern objects as small as four inches on the ground.

this is my fave aerial photo:

http://www.multimap.com/map/photo.cgi?cl...91&down.y=5

hope that enormous link works! its over 20 miles to heathrow from where this plane was pictured, so it was not flying very low at the time. not sure if that is proof that this is a satellite photo, but at the very least the platform with the camera on must've been very high up!
