Google Earth

Post by Angelisle » Sat Oct 08, 2005 10:51 pm

Google Earth at present has to be the most amazing free show on earth. It can be limited in that some of the sat info is approx 3 yrs old and certain towns and cities have not yet got clear definition, but I went to Paris this evening via Japan without any jet lag :lol: The best part is being able to tilt the screen a quick flick of the mouse and you can travel down the Seine at leisure on a Baton Mouge, truth, a pkt of crisps and a cuppa whilst viewing the laptop screen :lol:

Type in your postcode.It takes you straight there and you can tilt the angle to see your property from various angles. Well worth a look and handy for posts in the forums. Maybe subject to google approval?

I prefer this one for its great detail:

Like Google, just enter your postcode.

Aside from Google earth, where can I get real time satellite feeds of earth?
I've tried keyhole and various other sites but it seems that they are all linked to google earth. I need something that is updated more frequently. Does anyone know of a better site?
