I've been traveling a bit lately and I have tried all the map services, but I find the following the most INTERESTING and FUN to use.

http://maps.google.com/ and choose "HYBRID" map option - you will get a SATELITE VIEW of the map with superior quality images that seemlessly scroll by dragging the mouse - but best of all it OVER-LAYS the actual highway numbers or street address so that you can see the intersections, landmarks, landscape, etc.

It even has directional arrows to show traffic flow. When you choose DIRECTIONS - enter the from and to locations and a blue line will route your trip.

I really am into this mapping site and helped me find the campground that I am going to in September - I could see the roads (all numbered nicely) and the actually make out the campers at the campground.

I'll be in Maryland, about 12 miles from Dover International Speedway in Deleware.

Hope you enjoy this site, remember to click on HYBRID to get the full effect and type your address in and see your house and street from space.

The whole world appears to be in this map, I zoomed into Venice, I'm not sure though about detailed roads beyond the USA, but even as a view from space, we have the world in ONE HUGE SCROLLING PAGE - really sweet!!!!

for a quick look, just enter your zipcode Smiley

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

Now if they would only get my house on there...

If I put in my address I end up somewhere in the nearby town.  If I move to where my house is it says they don't have the hires pictures of that area.  Sad

Try

googleearth.com

I just loaded the free version on my computer over
the weekend.

I was able to see the rooftop where my hive is and
get a good idea where they might be foraging. You
can measure distances with it also. Cool  Cool  Cool
