One click satellite pics

Earlier this week Google integrated the satellite images collected for KeyHole into their Google Maps feature. Yet another COOL service from Google. I just wish they can get higher res pictures sometime in the future.
For people interested in looking this up follow these simple instructions :

1. Goto maps.google.com
2. Just above the map, right-justified in the shaded title bar you will see a link named "Satellite" - Click it.
3. Enter any US address.
4. Enjoy

Being a Columbia Grad :), I particularly liked this.

NOTE To People who know the Columbia Campus : If you check out Columbia Univ carefully - You can see the lawn in front of Butler under covers - and can see the CEPSR building emitting some smoke from the burners.

One click satellite pics….is interesting to say the least Nikhil. Myself, I like the odd and unusual. Fun Fact: There is a city called Rome on every continent in the world. Another: The word "queue" is the only word in the English language that is still pronounced the same way when the last four letters are removed. Now take a break from the blog, go outside, look up and smile for a satellite picture. Come back inside, and see if you can find yourself smiling in a satellite picture!
