Earth Google

http://earth.google.com/

its a 3d imaging program google made. they used all the pics and info that you could find in the other topographical site(i forget the name right now) but you can move around like youre a bird.

you can download it here
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=4659

ive been playing around with it for a couple days now. you can set points and make tours, use its street guide overlays for reference. if you like seein the world from a free floating and pretty dam graphical perspective(depending on where you live if its been scanned yet). today i went on a tour of Highway 1 on calis coast(windy road between SF and LA thats mere inches from the coast). i think ill have to take a actual trip down there when i get some time.

yeah earlier today i mapped a 8 hour drive to my freind rays house down in oceanside(hes a marine).

i used mapquest to figure out the surrounding streets, then selected the "road" layer and found it, then followed the steps. mapquest makes finding **** easy, but seeing it the roads and terrain just makes it that much better. i think google should buy out mapquest next, then some GPS system provider, so you can get this in a CD form and use it in a car.

anyone check out any big cities and do the "building layer"? i was looking at SF, LA and NY and man, this **** kicks even more ***. but you better have enough system for it, cause with the terrain, roads and buildings layer it was getting pretty choppy.

i tried to find the great wall of china but no avail. that whole part of the world isnt scanned yet. i guess it takes a really long time to do even a few sq. miles in the high detail, let alone building and street layers.

just imagine how kick *** this would be in a few years when google sends up its own keyhole sattelites and we can do Earth Google in Real-Time, and use **** like Infared and Heat sensitive capture.

it is keyhole. if you saw your house on the other site, it will be on the google thingie.

sometimes you get disconnected from the servers. when things dont load check the bottom of the screen where it says "streaming", it should always have a few IIIII that are blinking in sucession, meaning youre connected.

also, im sure 56k sucks the big one with this program.

Keyhole focused better on my house to the point where you could definitely see my Mustang parked outside, with this it is really.. vague. But funny enough it still had my bookmarks from my keyhole program. Edward's Airforce Base, people's houses, Boston where I visited. Good **** though, even that huge crater in Arizona I placed.

^ Well yeah, of course they aren't there. Look to where Central Park is, go North from there and keep going till you hit the water. You'll see all these buildings on the coast and you'll notice this big gap between some of the buildings, that would be GZ

Twin Towers could very well have been on there depending on when the picture was taken.

if you push on the buildings overlay, you will notice the twin towers arent there. a quick lookup of a pic of the skyline will show you where they used to be, now put 2 and 2 together.........

i kick such insane amounts of ***.

Orange County Choppers actual shop(not the corporate or show room mapquest lists) the addresses say montgomery, ny, i saw the corporate and the show buildings(what mapquest said they were) and was like, "thats not it" then i remembered the shop is in Rock Tavern, ny. so i did more googling and found the rock tavern adress, brought it up on mapquest, then overlayed it and traced its routes(via roads with the overlay) and viola, OCC shop.

though i guess thats not the new one(the new one with the sword sticking out the building) cause the new one is barely finished as it sits now, it wasnt even though of 3 years ago when the pic was taken.
