(Toledo, OH) For some of you the website and software offered by Google Earth is not news. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this product, this free service allows you to view any patch of the planet as seen from satellite.
The software is now used by over 100 million people, and it combines satellite images, maps, and local information to display geographical data.
The picture on the left is of my house as it might appear some 841 feet in the air.
The software made the news yesterday as spotters poring over satellite images discovered what appears to be two topless sunbathers in the Dutch city of The Hague.
Google makes this service available by inducing advertisers to put flags locating their businesses on the images, but they can be easily minimized by users.
At any rate, the site and software are fun to poke around with and kill a few extra minutes.
