If you aren’t using Google maps, you are missing out. They are awesome!!!
Click and drag in the map. Zoom in and out. Try driving directions from your house…
If that wasn’t cool enough, click the “satellite” view in the upper right hand corner.
But for WinXP, and now for Mac OS X, Google Earth adds the third dimension- allowing you to fly in 3D over terrain-accurate satellite pix of the earth, many areas in very high detail.
Must be seen to be believed! Google Earth is probably the coolest thing I’ve ever seen on the internet… (and I first logged on Compuserve in the mid 80’s!)
