Live Local

Anyone play around with this? Being a geography geek I thought this was pretty sweet. The oblique aerials are pretty awesome. They've got Vegas and New York. I was even able to zoom in on my house.

If your a geography guy, check out google earth. Much better interface and you can zoom al over the world. I am litteraly addicted to it.

Google Earth is ok. Live Local's imagery is much sharper and has better resolution.

Pretty amazing what technology brings us. I haven't seen this one before, but I'm sure I'll have some fun playing with it later. :-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
