I spy with my little... spy satellite

Yet another infertility-unrelated post. Ah, well.

Ahh, the joys of overhead (satellite or aerial) photos! Years ago, I visited Microsoft's TerraServer, but nowadays I tend to play with Google Maps instead. It's nice to be able to map out directions, and then see the path you're taking drawn against a satellite image by clicking the Satellite button in the upper right corner. And, I like being able to click on the map/picture and drag it around.

Ah, and here's another good reason to be happy about Google Maps: Google Sightseeing! Especially since the satellite/aerial photos now include areas outside the USA. What's cooler than seeing shipwrecks, Disneyland or Teotihuacán?

Not all places allow you to zoom all the way in, but you'll definitely want to with Google Moon!

Oh, and apparently Google Maps has helped someone fight a traffic ticket...
