Google have been busy updating their maps section.
In the top right hand corner click on sattelite and then move the screen to Australia and zoom in to see if you can see your house. Not all areas have been done so far but they will be updated.

PS: You will need broadband.

Yeah, I've been playing with it since it was released. I love the fly to function.
Pity NZ and Aus aren't in the same resolution as the US.

Beers,

Microsoft have launched their version recently. It is called MSN Virtual Earth.
Very US centric and the closest view you can get of Oz is 20 miles.
Google wins again :lol:

Looking at the Moon site was interesting. I'd forgotten how many missions went to the Moon in just three years. If the Yanks had continued these missions, we could be enjoying a beer on Mars now! Hmmm, I can see it now. Relaxing, watching the moons rise, sipping on a 'Red Dust Draught'.

If you are on one of those plans that cost you 15c/Mb when over your limit, watch your download counter. It moves faster than the satellite your'e pretending to fly. You can easily clock up 20Mb/Hr.

Discomfort as Google zooms from great height

August 8, 2005 - 5:08PM


Australia's nuclear regulator has called on Google to censor high-quality satellite imagery of the Lucas Heights nuclear reactor which is freely available on its website.

Google Earth, a new software program owned by the search engine giant, allows users to zoom across the planet at a height of about 300 metres.

The technology offers a bird's eye view of the entire Lucas Heights facility, including the soon-to-be-decommissioned HIFAR reactor and the early stages of construction of its replacement, the OPAL reactor.

Such is the quality of the satellite imagery that cars and the clearly defined perimeter can be seen.

The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation wants the quality of imagery downgraded or completely obscured.

"We would probably prefer [Google] not to show images as intimately as they currently do and we'll certainly be liaising with them to see whether we can reduce that level of intimacy," ANSTO spokesman, Craig Pearce, said.

Dont worry, most of the photos are a couple of years old. I know it shows my house, minus the extra house they built on the back of the block approx 2 years ago.
