It's pretty neat, actually!

Problem is there's many blackspots where Google don't have the satellite photos yet, hopefully they'll fix that in good time.

Yeah, been using that for a while. It's really great when you get a high-res area, then you can zoom to the point were you can see cars and people.

Yes, absolutely!!! I downloaded that program like a month ago and loving it. The pictures are kind of old and some areas aren't showing too clear, but still neat to look at. I love it...

The earth's GIS. A very big project and currently the best. The question is, will it never compromise national security?

South Korea got mad at Google because it showed various touchy areas like the presidential manor, among other places. I don't know if and how they resolved that, but basically, if a satellite can see it, it's on there (though I'm sure the United States government got its grubby hands on it first to edit out what they wanted).
