Now you can view the rest of the world via Google Satellite.

Thanks moltar, it's very nice indeed. I'm surprised it was added so soon.

Yes I am surprised too. I noticed that in some european cities detailed work already started too.

For example if you type in Amsterdam, Netherlands, then you will see a grey area where you can see the city in more detail. I guess those are plane shots.

I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed, but I can now see much greater satellite detail on Google maps. In fact, I can see my house.

And Charles de Gaulle Airport, and the Vatican.

EBear,

I thought of the same. Google is not always best, but do we know everything?

Sometimes, I think of a world dictator. He has a lot of satellites in geostationary orbit, one above my house.

I write something on his WeBLOG that he does not like. He light his laserpistol, and

is history, neither archived nor indexed.

GoogleBOT don't follow me. Now I am even more paranoid.

How so? Terraserver does not show colored images and doesn't even have anything besides USA.

You can try "Rio de Janeiro, Brazil", but the streets names dont looks "indexed". The Google maps is very cool!

Are you thinking of Copacabana? If so then I tried looking for it thru the search, but no results returned. I found some other image of the beach from above (a diagram) and just found it manually on the map muyself.

Latitude: -22.971983
Longitude: -43.182707

(You can input these into the search field)

Moltar.

It was a digression. Saw 60 minutes on Norwegian TV at the sime time I wrote here.

Interesting that it is shown on Norwegian TV and you have not heard about it in Canada.

It was about scam, telephone scam. He (they) may need detailed maps, to locate isolated eras where people are not aware of it.

The UK views are not so good, but you can zoom in to see a great overhead view of the Vatican.

He he - I dont know - I can see my house (you can see cars too - well on the road - not on the driveway so well)

Some Cities are mapped to a higher level than others.

Looks like it was taken last summer 2003 for my area (Guessing by stage of building works nearby)

If you zoom out so that you can see the whole continent, you'll see gray and other color squares. Those are the areas that have detailed views. I guess they are working on coverting the whole continent, but just not there yet.

"coverting the whole continent" or "covering"? :-)

Make it simple, as simple as possible, but no simpler.

hehe, covering, of course.

And re: Canada scams - I haven't heard of anything recent.

I downloaded Keyhole which Google bought and I've been having a lot of fun with it. I might actually purchase the personal edition after the free trial is up.

Smashing, if you buy the personal edtion, you get to beta "Google Earth Plus" (changed from Keyhole.
I have looked at every place i have ever lived.

Especially try From an address To an address and then hit "tour" and it will fly the route for you.

I'm just waiting for the goggles.

Man, I can see my house in Thailand, but not in England. Will they be slowly adding more high res images?

After a while zooming around on satelitte view it can make you feel a bit ill.

Could just be me though.

(Very surprised how many people have got pools near where I live - Ok Weather is generally better in my part of the UK - but not really outside swimming pool conditions.)

He he - the things you learn - also very intresing what parts of the world have high resolution images. (EG Not just big US/UK/Euro Cities)

I've read stories that people have figured out how to generate custom maps with Google Maps to point out locations of their choosing. Now that Google Maps covers most of the world (more or less) it would be very useful for one of my sites.

Has anyone figured out how to control the map generation? For me, the prime needs are to pass longitude and latitude along with a zoom factor. Showing multiple locations on a map would also be very nice, but not necessary.

Hopefully someone out there has been playing with it.

StuffOfInterest: that's easy, just look in the URL after you clicked "Link to this page".
ll=.... parameter holds long and latt in decimal notation for the current location.

...?ll=-22.217920,-43.703613

As an alternative you can enter long and latt in the search box and it will find and point out the location with a balloon. Said that you can just substitute search string.

...?q=-22.971983,-43.182707&spn=1.530098,2.378540

I think spn parameter tells the zoom level, but I am not sure how.

The next step in the evolution must be

1. Real time movie / map.
2. Infrared movie / map.

Money will speak as usual.

Monkscuba...How do you get to see your house in Thailand? I'm trying to locate mine in Bangkok and each time I zoom to a particular level all I get is missing images (little red x in top left of image).

I remember downloading a free program from NASA with the same data. Actually even the most obscure towns in Africa were mentioned. I was amazed.

Most likely Ipanema. I know a 'girl from' there ;)
