google satellite kicks ass

I´m really deeply impressed: when you search on local.google.com one now can watch either the „normal“ map or the satellite view. and this is so, so cool: I´ve got the feeling, as if web and real world are beginning to merge somehow. The performance is very very well: you can take the picture and drag it around ans you like. Unfortunately it´s just a BETA and only available in the US at the moment. So the integration of keyhole (acquired by google in Oct. 2004) seems to be succesfully finished. (via searchenginelowdown.com)

By the way: there´s another service called terraserver.com and it offers different countries and satellites, too. I´ve found my hometown cologne there, offering a 1 Meter resolution – rocks too!!!
