    Is it real? well yeah we didn`t all imagine it ;)

    Its a load of shots taken from space over a period of years then stuck into that programme, some places have hi-res crystal clear pictures (like paris and new york city) and some places have crappy low res pictures (like my house) its a very cool thing to mess about with download it! (works best with high speed conections)

    God where do you live. The pics of my house are crystal clear ( I live in the Cleveland area ), and the college I attend is crystal clear too.

    And then there is NYC. For those of you that live there, you can make the buildings look 3-D. There is enough tools essentially for somebody to plot another terrorist attack. :confused:

    I think it is the neatest thing in the world, you can zoom in on your house and see your pool.

    I followed the scan across Georgia, found Six Flags and zoomed in to the Batman ride. Clear as crystal.
