The past few days I have been completely addicted to Google Earth. It’s free to download and is probably the most interesting thing I’ve ever done online!
The faster your internet connection, the better the experience, but it would be worth waiting for on dial up too.
This weekend I have explored the outback of Australia, Paris, Istanbul, London, New York, the Grand Canyon, and California! Most major cities around the world have really detailed, high resolution satellite images, but even the unpopular, low resolution areas are fascinating. There’s a list of high resolution places here.
You can download the Google Earth software for free here. Just be warned, it’s very addictive!
