If you're a Google Earth user, you'll be happy to discover that Google has made a huge update to their satellite image library
, adding coverage or improving the resolution on over 100 cities worldwide. You don't need to do anything to take advantage of the updates; they're just there, and will be available if you view any of the affected locales. If you've never tried Google Earth
, get on the bandwagon, but be warned: it can steal many hours of your time as you explore with it. Two highlights of the recent update are Mount Everest in 0.7m/pixel resolution, and Google's Mountain View campus in 1inch/pixel resolution!
