I was exploring a geo-blog registry service, when I called up this mapping display and was astounded at the ‘birds eye’ view provided of my neighborhood and our house!! The photo clearly shows the old blue-streak van in the open garage, and there is some white service vehicle in the driveway next to my boat!
From the missing trees, I can tell this picture is post-charley (8/2004). I researched a little and found that the MS Virtual Earth is a service launched to rival Google Earth, and is a component of Windows Live-Local.
update here’s some other views:
