Check out satellite photo Google Maps!

Now this is cool... now has a new "Satellite" feature.

I already liked the neat overview map they that showed your driving directions from point A to point B, but now you can get a satellite photo view instead of a computer rendered map. That's cool because you can zoom in to your destination and note some landmarks near point B.

I was already considering using Google Maps as my default mapping engine (I am quite fond of MapQuest as well), but now I am truly sold.

For someone else's take (they were also impressed), see this page.

  1. The satellite map thing is SOOOOO cool! Did you look at your house and all your friends' houses like me? (I know, I'm a dork!) But I looked at Darrick & Jenn's (before I even finished reading your post, so we think alike, my friend!) and I couldn't zoom in as much as I could my house. I got to thinking that it was probably because it is a military base and they don't want terrorists and the like to get such a good view, huh? Pretty cool.

    Thanks for the info! (That's part of the reason I like reading your blogs - they're chock full of COOL info!) :o)

    See ya later alligator!
