    check out this program. it is a sweet program to play with all the options and see all the different views and what not:D warning you need a heafty machine and it is also like a 114 meg download but well worth it http://worldwind.arc.nasa.gov/

    :confused: kinda sucked to me, it made me install all this extra software and all it does is zooms in and shows you dirt, no detail what so ever. that is unless i'm doing something wrong, but i dont think its all that advanced.:blush:

    Same with me. Surely they know that all we really want to do is zoom in on our house, hope to see our truck parked up in the driveway and if we're really lucky...catch a glimpse of your neighbours daughter sunbathing in the garden!!!:grin:
    Maybe they'll sort it out by summer!:D

    They say the infrastructure isn't really in place yet so local servers may not respond. Maybe mine aint! It'll be really cool if it starts working good.

    it is slow but it will auto focus. what it dose is downloades the images and it only dose it a section at a time. you will see a little red square in the areas it is updating.
