NASA World Wind Satellite Mapping Program
What you see above are images I took using the NASA World Wind mapping software. If you have never used it before, you have to check it out. It uses satellites to show you images of anywhere in the world - and it blows Google Keyhole out of the water. Using buttons in the menu, you can change the view to show actual imagery (see top image), or a traditional topo map (see bottom image). The two images above are actually different views of the same thing - that being The Museum of Natural History right next to Central Park.
