Google Maps — Now With Satellite

Holy cow! It’s late and I should go to bed, but the “Google Blog just announced”:http://www.google.com/googleblog/2005/04/birds-eye-view.html that “Google Maps”:http://maps.google.com now has the ability to display satellite images in the same slick interface as it already delivers maps. Now you can have driving directions superimposed over actual images of the streets in your hometown.

In my mind, Google Maps already blew MapQuest out of the water, but this adds a whole new dimension of fun.

    I completely agree.

  • Yes! I’ve been saying that this will happen ever since Google bought out keyhole, and now it has!

    Satellite images are so cool. :-)

  • Are they planning on doing it for other countries?
