on the Washington Monthly blog got me clicking all kinds of interesting links. It is amazing to discover the uses people are able to come up with for large databases of information. The google maps satellite photo database has spurred all kinds of interesting uses and made looking at a map much more interesting. Looking at the Washington Monument and the White House on a regular map
can be interesting, but looking at a photo of it from a birds eye view
is fascinating. Check out the interesting Wired Magazine article
that discusses some of the fascinating things that have been caught in satellite photos. Then look at the Google Sightseeing blog
and check out some of their amazing links.
