I Can See My House From Here!

Fri Apr 15, 2005 6:30 am

The google maps sattelite option lets me zoom in enough to see my house in Crapchester!

And on a good-day... park bench to park bench

I only get a map... how do I get the arieal/satelite photographs? I live in an urban area, so I'd be suprised if it hasn't been mapped.

Wait I found it... duh  Wink

Very cool new feature, but for major metropolitan areas http://www.terraserver.microsoft.com can be even much more accurate with an amazing zoom!

You're right, here's an example:

Cool shot of new mile high! Too bad for you, Harry, that the greater NYC area is still black and white and just plain bad! What is up with that?

Yeah, that is quite aggravating. And even with the google map, it is at some weird angle and is hard to make out. At least the NJ side comes in nice and clear on google.  Smile

I checked out the terraserver, and its Crapchester images are at least ten years out of date. It predates Frontier Field, the baseball park opened in 1997.

Is there a way to check the date of when the sat photos were taken on google?

On terraserver my neighborhood was taken '94, on google, it shows the new developments that were just built last year, im curious as to when exactly the photos were taken.

Probably because it is not that high quality, plus anyone who watches the Discovery Channel at all has probably seen that picture before.
