    Look what I found...

    In my travels through the Intraweb I stumbled upon a software that I am having a blast playing with.

    This software is produced by NASA and allows you to view the globe, zoom in to anywhere on it, and concentrate on what you are specificly looking for. Say, for example you want to get an arial view of the Grand Canyon, you can. If you want to look at a specific building in a specific city, you can. If you want to see what Mt. St. Helens looked like from a satellite when it erupted, you can. If you want to see a road map of a specific area, you can. You can look at earth from space rotate it where you want it, and zoom into that spot as close as you like.

    Yet another cool part is when you select a map it downloads the latest info from that specific server that is usually updated almost daily.

    The downside is it is a resource hog and if you don't have a broad band connection it will take forever to dl the software and the individual maps from the server as you need them.

    It's called NASA World Wind. Check it out if you're interested.

    I remember hearing about it a few months ago but at the time the servers were getting an onslaught so everything was extremely slow, Have you tried to look at Area 51?

    My computer doesn't have the muscle to run it. :(

    I got an excellent picture of the eastern hemisphere from the screenshot section though. I've been looking for one for a while and now I got it. Eased the blow.

    Well, I wouldn't complain if you sent me a check for $20, but the software is free.
