I can see my car from here!

Google has just released Google Earth, its tool for exploring and examining satellite imagery. Best thought of as a Picasa for satellite imagery, Earth replaces Keyhole.

You can fly around the globe, and then zoom in to the detailed satellite images. I'm pretty sure I can see my car parked just down the road from our house... And the basic version costs nothing. Well, nothing but your time!

Not as deep and educational as NASA's World Wind, but quicker and a little bit more fun.

You will need a fast PC and a broadband connection to get the most out of this...
