    It’s a good feeling when one can re-discover important autobiographical landmarks. Sure, the childhood homestead is easy. The Swansea flat was harder but do-able. Other important locations have yet to be relocated…but I honestly think I found my old car. You get bonus points by refraining from using Google for street addresses, but it’s all right to overlay streets.

    Zooming in from way out almost gives one a sense of vertigo, like taking a ride on the best roller coaster EVAR.

    Thanks for the heads-up, John.

    My pleasure. Don’t miss the fact that you can take it to the next level by making — and sharing — “placemarks.”

    So for example, Matt works here, and I too had a bit of trouble locating HSV but settled on here.

    What the fuck. “Google Earth downloads temporarily delayed”. The company with 150000 CPUs in their server farm can’t handle the load?

    Well we can’t have B-don going without, can we? Here you go. (This link will stop working after a week or so.)

    When you run it you’ll appreciate it’s a hell of a load, even with the recommended 400MB of cache. I was getting some blurred images and low streaming percentages (much better after they cached) which I put down to a big crunch of new users.

    Google has done a good work so far.

    Moreover the maps for mobiles should also be accurate and well clear to find the paths which has not yet been done for whole part of the world.

    Still lot of efforts have to be done.

    Google should approach good aerial photographers to get much clear and focussed pictures for streets and houses giving a real end view.
