With all of the interest in satellite and aerial images these days I thought TerraFly, a service from Florida Int. University (with support from IBM), was worthy of another mention on the blog. Terrafly not only offers interactive satellite/aerial images but also provides local info for most of these images. It's very easy to try the service.
+ Go to: http://terrafly.fiu.edu and enter an address or location or pick one of the recommended starting points.
+ Wait for an image to appear.
+ Next, choose a location on the image and click.
+ Another window should open containing local info about the location. For example, when I searched for the aerial image for my house the local info page contained:
+ Census info
+ The names of nearby streets
+ Much more
