you guys should check out nasa's world wind virtual globe. originally an open source virtual globe, if you know how to program you can customize it however you want for whatever your uses. i think it's better than google earth but it's a little more complex

World wind requires a lot of horsepower-be careful. It's based off of the merging of the radar altimeter data acquired from a special mapping shuttle mission and other data into one datum. cool!

Cool.....Zoomed in on the Steven's Gulch trailhead to Grays and see several cars in the parking lot. Can any of you 14ers.com folks claim any of these cars???

My car is on Google in a parking lot behind my fraternity house taken probably 4 years ago. Pretty cool to see your car and be able to identify others.

That is pretty cool!

Here is another website that I just came across (Global Incident Map) - it's a virtual representation of terrorist-related events and other 'suspiciuos activity' around the world. If you click on the icons, it'll show you the event details with what's going on:
