Some of you might be interested in downloading and installing this free handy little tool which you can use to view house locations and their proximity to rubbish dumps, red-light districts, crack-houses, railway lines, busy roads, etc.

I spent all day at work yesterday playing on this :P

The coverage of the US cities is awsome, I happily occupied myself by flying around and spotting all the US sports stadiums (sad I know!). The grand canyon is pretty cool as well, you can even move through the canyon itself by playing with the tilt.

Anyone know if they plan to increase the high res coverage of the UK? There are already some areas (quiet a strange selection!) but not yet my neck of the woods..

.

PS I used to use an open source program called NASA World Wind essentially the same thing but a lot bulkier and less efficient than the google one (and with out the option to locate pubs etc :P )

This is just the beta version. Expect vast improvements in the future. B)
