Hey Look, Our Neighbor Has Pool!

april 11, 2006

Hey look! Our neighbor has a pool! I never have understood why people love satellite imagery so much on maps. It is not like it will help you get to grandma's place any better. But, hey, since you like it so much, Yahoo! is giving you what you want. Check out the latest Yahoo! Maps Beta which features satellite imagery. Since this is still beta, the satellite photos (actually, they are airplane photos from what I read) are still lower resolution than those other guys. But, I am hoping that they will get higher res soon. And there is no other place where you can do the coolest thing around: Overlay traffic onto the satellite imagery. Nice. Anyways, enjoy looking into your neighbor's backyard.
