Yay for Google Earth!

About a week ago, Google Earth update KL with high resolution mapping data! So now KL is shown in it's full 1 meter glory. For those who don't know, 1 meter resolution means objects 1 meter or larger are discernable on the map.

Right then, here are some examples.

And finally, taken from the targetting camera from a Tomahawk Cruise Missle. :D

Anyway, you may notice the odd choice of photos, I guess these will interest specific people out there. Also, for those who have Google Earth, I have a file with bookmarks of interesting places like major shopping complexes and landmarks i made that you can ask me for. I'd upload it, but i have no webspace. :D

Will put an entry on this tonight, thanks for the head-up.

Andrew: *Evil Laugh!*

Cel + Pat: It is small.. just the the picture is big :D If were scale to scale, ISKL would be 3x larger.

Izzy: Yes baby, ISKL Ampang. The one near Ampang Point. Can't get a good picture of Bucherest in general. I tried looking, i spent 2 days actually... I did finally find AISB, but it's a 1cm x 1cm smudge. I could post it later if you like... Not at my PC at the moment.
