Satilite Pictures of Earth
    #4554451 - 08/19/05 04:31 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I just came across this the other day and thought it was a pretty wild program, I had a 30 day trial version along time ago but now it seems that google has it and put it online for free.
Its pretty wild, can see pretty close for a free one.
Here's the link http://kh.google.com/download/earth/plus.html

Have a good one all

Edit - Here's a pic from my home town.


--------------------
Pitbulls are like any other dog, they can be trained to be nasty or they can be trained to be good, some are smart and some are stupid, just like every other breed.
Their tough, stubborn and loyal, which is easily turned into something horrible in the wrong hands.

Google's the shit...I found this while looking through some of the people that implement this technology for other purposes...

Maps out where the Cheaper gas stations are located
www.ahding.com/cheapgas/

Maps out where the lastest reported crime has taken place in Chicago

I downloaded the free version a few weeks ago, and played
with it for a couple of days, but I never could figure out how
to get the real close detail, I was trying to look at Ft. sill,
and the Wichita Mountain wildlife refuge in Okla.

check out 37'14'18.10'N 115'46'37.17"W for some reason this place isn't listed as an airport.



or this on about 85 miles north of vegas


maybe one is the old site and the other is the new one?

Well it is Area 51 I'm almost surpised google didn't censor it and it's surroundings. The roof of the white house is blocked too, but you can use the original microsoft terraserver and got shots of it nothing to special.

I'm actually setting that up to use at work. I'm adding placemarkers of our stores all over the country with details about them and sharing it on the network via the network link tool. Have you played with the 3D terrain and tilt function? Turn on terrain and check out MT st. hellens or the grand canyon. Tilt it over so you see the horizon and then grab drag and let go in flight. Now your flying over #D terrain. Beat fists on chest to make chopper noises and your on a helicopther tour of the canyon.

Fuckin Sweet man thanks.

The top of the white house is painted over. So is the Pacific Command Center. (The NORRAD of Oahu)

Tilting the grand canyon is pretty cool! The 3D perspective has incredible detail!

I used the old version to map out fields and if I knew the fields general location it helped a lot

I wonder what the premium version looks like

If this is what there giving away for free just imagine what the Gov got..scary

the dept of defence was claiming 2 yrs ago that they could read newspaper headlines. by now i'm sure they can read fine print.

someone actually has invented an "x-ray" gun that allows you to see through things but it is very unstable and the inventor reported losing use of his right hand for over a year when putting it in the ray.
