Go here:

Then click on your area of the globe that's available and keep zooming in. I was able to see my house. Kind of neat.

If you're in an urban area you can use the locater input and get right there immediately. I live in the boonies so unless you have an idea to begin with, it's harder to find me with it.

Would be more fun if they allowed live satellite images and a little more zoom

Well, LIPS, it _is_ the USGS that runs the site. Perhaps there's an equivelant down under?

You guys should try the Keyhole Trials...

It kills your computer, but it's basically a similar satellite photography program, however you can pan around the entire world and measure distances...I did a search on NYC and the zoom got to about 20 meters off the ground
