I thought I would toss out a cool satellite and aerial image tool. The tool is called World Wind and is a FREE piece of software (Windows only) from
NASA that allows you to easily search and manipulate many terabytes of satellite images, aerial images, and topographical maps from various sources
Major landmarks around the globe can be marked on images. In fact, icons are clickable and link to a Wikipedia entry about the landmark. This is but
only one of the many cool features of the program.
The newly expanded
NASA 'World Wind' program can now 'transport' users to almost anyplace on the moon, when they zoom in from a global view
to closer pictures of our natural satellite taken by the Clementine spacecraft in the 1990s.
It is really worth checking out if you haven't already.
Here is a helpful chart that offers a explanation of how to use World Wind and introduces the different datasets available. It can safe you some
