    That's sweet. Anyone know if the beta version (version 4) is better?

    Anyone know the address to LP Field?

    Ah nevermind, think I found the field :)

    Seems like some places, like where I live, have bad resolution. But other places have really good resolution. Like I can see the 4 seats I had season tickets for at The Colesium 2 years ago :O

    Here's where I went fishing this morning:

    20 degrees 56'43.42"N
    156 degrees 19'10.83" W

    Lava fields, strong winds, crashing waves... :cool:


    Pardon if I misunderstand your statement...
    The low resolution is satellite imagery. The high resolution is aeriel photography; I don't think they're coming from the same camera. Look for superimposed clouds. Also notice the dark/light shading of the pictures.

    yeah it's a mix, at the bottom of the screen you can see where Google got the images from (TerraMetrics, GeoContent, NASA, etc.).

    Can someone explain to me why there's so much detail in Missouri though??

    Didn't notice there were different ways of photographing what I was looking at. I'll try version 4 for the hell of it.
