Google..yup it rules

Google Feature Incorporates Satellite Maps

Give it a try, its pretty slick:

SAN FRANCISCO - Online search engine leader Google has unveiled a new feature that will enable its users to zoom in on homes and businesses using satellite images, an advance that may raise privacy concerns as well as intensify the competitive pressures on its rivals.

The satellite technology, which Google began offering late Monday at http://maps.google.com, is part of the package that the Mountain View-based company acquired when it bought digital map maker Keyhole Corp. for an undisclosed amount nearly six months ago.

It's funny how you're able to access up close aerial satellite pictures of the Pentagon and the White House, but not of the Naval Observatory and Capitol Hill.
