Just remembered Terraserver.

WTF is Microsoft doing? Or allow me to say MSN.

Google took that idea, and actually made it work. So - what is MSN going to do about it? Terraserver is "basically unuseable" (by me), because I hate the interface. Reminds me of the web several years ago.

It's rather easy to link to Google Maps (here's a link to the satellite picture of SFO), after all.
