Isn't that cool?

I could see my kid's 4' round blue swimming pool in our backyard! (The A/S was in the shadows from the trees -- undectable in spy photos!)

Depends on where you live but in heavy urban areas the update seems to be every 2 years or so, the further out you live the longer it takes...

Even in urban areas, the update can be slow! I checked ours, found it thinks our address is my neighbor's house--and the photo is over two years old (Vienna is pretty populous). So, no trailer (but my neighbor's ex's boat is there)!

Maybe in a few more months!

I found my '01 Safari on the storage lot which is about 3 miles from my house. The color makes it stand out from the rest of the SOB's. This picture was dated 2002.

How are you getting that level of resolution. My shot is from 1991 so no trailer. But you can hardly make out the house when enlarged and zomed in.

I believe the low res black and white ones are satellite, and the newer colored ones are photos from aircraft?

Last time over my house was 1996. All you can see are trees.

Naaah, it's all satellite big brother is watching!

Try this one:

http://maps.google.com/

The resolution is great, but I can't zoom it anymore. it would zoom in to see our Suburban, utility trailer and a pile of white trash bags from where we shut down a used book store. They were only here one weekend last fall. Helped us narrow down the date.

Several years ago I downloaded a satellite photo of my parents farm in rural Minnesota. When my mom (in her 80s) saw it her comment was "I think I'll start pulling down the window shades"

So Cool!!

Shari, that is pretty cool! Thanks for sharing it!

Our latest update was 1998, pre-Luna days, but I'll keep trying the site in the future!

Yeah, last time I checked, ours hadn't been updated post-Maxwell...now it shows up, clear as a bell! Keep checking ~

The funny thing is, that's not where we normally park...it was just there for a couple of weekends while I was stripping....clearcoat that is!
