Don't forget to zoom into the closest level when on the moon - hilarious.

Yea...I got a kick out of that, too. For once, I had proof for my kids that the moon is made of cheese :rofl:

I've been using Google Earth for quite a while.

The coolest thing I like about it is the ability to show 3-D representaitons of the skylines of larger cities (such as Atlanta, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa, Charlotte, etc.) It's awesome! Draw a 3-D representation of a city and then rotate it 360 degrees! :thumbsup:

The thing I like least about it is that a lot of the imagry (for example, Downtown Greenville and Travelers Rest) is not as high of a resolution and doesn't show as much detail as for other areas...heck, the entire State of Indiana is Hi-Res....why not Greenville?!?!? :w00t:

They are slowly gathering the data. Most of whe brown colored images are in fact aerial photos. I can't figure out why they have random areas like Woodruff and Greer, but not Greenville and Spartanburg though. That really drives me nuts. I know that both of these areas have hi-res aerial imagery available.

Normally this type of thread should go in the coffee house, but it will be a duplicate thread there. So if you guys can keep the subject on SC, then it can stay here.

MSN Virtual Earth has more detailed Aerial Photography of the Upstate; however, it's rather out-dated. Heck, you can still see the Memorial Auditorium in Greenville (and no Bi-Lo Center yet). The Richardson Street Garage was just a parking lot. Camperdown Way Bridge is still there, etc.

But at least it's more detail ;)

Sadly, it doesn't work for cities outside of the US, I believe.

It's a great program, though.
