Google Maps

I think Google Maps is a great service. Both maps and satellite photos are there. I have wasted a lot of time just looking around at the satellite pictures of various areas.

This is a picture of my apartment building as taken from a satellite.

Here is a satellite image of an aircraft carrier docked in San Diego.

Here's the Imperial Palace in Tokyo.

What interesting things have you found?

日本語:
Google Mapsはいいだろう。 地図とサテライトから写真がある。 サテライトから写真を見るのは沢山時間の無駄だった。

私のアパートのビルのサテライトから写真だ。

サンディエゴに航空母艦のサテライトから写真だ。

東京に宮城だ。

何を見つける?

Google Maps has now added maps for Japan. See
http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=36.199958,139.108887&spn=4.370217,7.888184&z=10&hl=en

All addresses are written in Japanese.

This seems to be the 4th country with maps - the others being
US, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
