Default Big Brother Knows All

Click on the site below. Type in your address in the upper left corner and click GO. It will find your house from the satellite. Big Brother knows all. (I find this really scary! )************************************************* *********

Actually it was kind of cool but it's not very accurate for Orlando anymore.....lots of the trees are gone since the hurricanes!

I did this once not a few months ago, but the sattelite photo was so old that the car I sold a year or so ago was parked in my driveway! It was pretty cool, though. I got a chance to see how much the trees had grown!

It's on terraserver and you can select USGS survey maps or radar photos. I'm sure you can find it on government web sites too as your tax dollars paid for it.

I was looking at our house about 7 years ago and the pictures were old then.

Once had a "salesman" come by the house (many years ago) and was trying to sell an aerial photo of our house for $300. I just grinned and told him I had the same photo on my desktop from terraserver. He left quickly.

Regard,s
Thomas

I didn't edit it out. It is supposedly a Government website so it should be allowed here I would think.
