Google Sightseeing

I discovered an interesting blog today called Google Sightseeing, a site which displays satellite images from around the world as found on the recently updated Google Maps service. The postings are broken down into a number of groups, I think the best of which is the 'weirdness' category. My favourite posting so far is this mind boggling image where two satellite photos taken from different angles have been stitched together to create a seamless - if slightly confusing - single image.

On a related note, this image on the Flickr photo sharing site is brilliant - it's the view an ordinary person on the ground gets when Google Maps pinpoints a spot nearby.
