Use Google, and search the world!

Google has recently acquired Keyhole Corp. Apparently, Keyhole is the only company to deliver a 3D digital model of the entire earth via the internet. They have pioneered the EarthStream technology that combines advanced 3D graphics and network streaming innovations to produce a high performance system that runs on standard PC’s and commodity servers.

Now imagine this.

Fire up Google. Type - "Anna Nagar, Madras" and it throws up a satellite digital image of the place and allows you to zoom to street level.

Thought this happened only in the movies (Enemy of the State) ??

The one thing that amazes me about Google is the fact that they seem to be doing too many things without making much noise about it!

Hey nidrajiva

Of course, you wont get the satellite image when you search on Google. But it is quite possible that you could see something like that in the near future, now that KeyHole is a Google company! I'm just speculating.
