    It's a great site. I enjoy looking down at land we're thinking of buying from above... you can see what's around it.

    Google is pretty limited for rural areas.

    who is google? they arent out driving the countryside taking snapshots man.

    download that program, all it does is grab every resource out there and collate it into one comprehensive tool. If a satalite snapped a pic of your house or a plane flew by overhead and it was made public, it's there.

    obviously there is better coverage for cities, that shouldn't have to be said, there is more people in them. but if google earth doesn't have it, i'd be surprised if one of the other places does.

    unfortunately all of these have photos of our mountain area that are pretty old, like from 1990 or so from the looks of our place. Only the building pad is visable, no buildings which began in 1991!

    Here is the one that I use all the time...
    MapMart

    Just click on the state and then click and drag over the area you want.

    Just think...the feds have real-time access to the satellite images...LOL. But I like them. For Christmas our first year here, my wife got me a framed aerial view of our entire property from one of those companies. I have it on the wall in my study. It was taken before we built anything, so we're waiting for a new one to become available for a before-and-after comparison.

    google's imagery is terrible in my area, but in other areas its excellent. I really wish they would update my area! Any idea when/if they will update US imagery in places other then big cities?
