Fun with Google Aerials

When I posted in early April about Google's aerial maps, I did not know about Google Sightseeing (or it didn't as yet exist, I'm not sure). That fun site has some interesting architectural sightings that have prompted me to search out some equally interesting aerials.

A couple of their's:

Smith-Miller Hawkinson and Barbara Kruger's Picture This at the North Carolina Museum of Art (as linked previously).

The WTC site in Lower Manhattan, much in the news these days.

A handful of mine:

  1. I have been doing this myself for a little time now, too. I have found (and saved onto my PC) the Hoover Dam, Pentagon, Space Needle, the White House, Statue of Liberty, the WTC site (just like you had found, and I have already posted on my blog), and more.

    Pan around Nevada, that's fun.
