Don't know if this has been posted or not, but it is really cool. Allows you to type in addresses, sities, etc and then it zooms in on them and shows aerial photos. Depending on the area the resolution varies...suprisingly Beijing, China was pairly clear!

Requires a fairly large download, so broadband connection required.

A friend of mine at work was showing me this. Pretty cool. You can go from the earth all the way down to your nieghbourhood. The unfortunante thing is that when you go to Toronto its flat and then New York they show every single building. They show Mount Saint Helens, the Horseshoe falls but not the canadian side of the falls.

Im jealous. What about us!! lol

Laval has a whole aerial photography website. You can zoom into your back yard.

What I like about comparing Europe with Canada is the size of the fields. In Europe, the fields are small and all different shapes. In Canada they're very rectangular and huge.
