Posted:Anyone tried "googleEarth"? It's a satelite mapping programme thingy which allows you to zoom in on any part of the globe. Personally my result was a bit poor, but others have had more luck.

Download it from http://www.download.com/Google-Earth/3000-2054_4-10411075.html?tag=lst-0-1
for free, then post your home, pointing out key features. Here's an example of a good one:

Posted:Its annoying that it doesn't allow you to zoom in as far over each section of the map. It would be even cooler if you could zoom in so far as to see people on the street and see flowers.
