Just being curious: have you folks already been playing around with
Google Earth? I recently spend some time browsing World Wind [1], but 
Google [2] just takes this whole geo-searching thing a step further. 
Incredible photographs, and not just for the USA. Try Melbourne, 
Australia. The inner city of Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. Paris gives 
you the tourist bus parking space near the Louvre. I know there's cool 
technology produced but this really blew me away...

Kinda makes you wondering whether you have to take 'key hole' literally 
for militairy applications :)
