Google Satellite Maps

When will it end?
In an effort to out pace Yahoo! Maps, Google has now implemented integration of satellite imagery with Google Maps. Users can now switch between the traditional map view and the satellite view. So now not only can you use Google Maps to see how to get to a location, you can see what the landmarks are and what the building looks like.
Six months ago, they bought Keyhole Corp, a company that specialised in satellite imagery. That was quick.

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 4 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left. I am a political economy student at the University of Athabasca, working on my second undergrad degree.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
