Satellite/Aerial Images Plus Local Info

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: 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
+ Schools
+ Hotels
+ Restaurants
+ Much more

TerraFly has been online for about five years and has been featured in the NY Times and has Yahoo Pick of the Week.
