Amazing new tool
« on: July 31, 2005, 10:51:02 pm »
I read about this thing in the paper and since I took a look at it, I haven't stopped. It's a program which allows you to view earth from space. You can zoom in on most places to get detailed satellite pictures (The biger the place = more detail). I just thought it was worth recommending it to everyone.

I've used it too - only thing to look out for is that it needs a reasonable spec graphics card.

Not an issue for any current PC but it won't run on my Pentium III laptop as the graphics adapter has insufficient memory.

Definitely worth a go though !
