"Stumbled across" and "chance discovery" are words they are using to describe this arrest even though the suspects were under investigation......This is only the beginning of the invasive use of the new Google satellite imaging...this things resolution is nothing short of amazing... you can even make out the cracks in the sidewalks....Coming soon to your back yard....Ya know that little yard barn or shed you "forgot" to get that building permit for ....WELL guess what......

I dont see how that can be. The images arent updated to frequently. My car still sits in my dads driveway and its a car I havent owned in over 2 years.

Yes, Google Earth (and Google Maps) images are not updated with the frequency most people would want (some people even think that the images are real time
), so I guess they used that field for some time.

And no, strokker, the images from Google Earth are not that good, specially in rural areas, the real good photos are not as cheap as the ones Google uses, the best Google Earth images are not from satellites but from aeroplanes, like the bird's eye views from Live Maps.

Money talks or connections, the stuff we get on google earth is out of date, but if you have the connections they would move the satellite over to count the hairs on your dogs ass if need be.

The satellite?

Google uses several comercial satellite services, anyone with enough money can buy those photos.

Pot is not a drug, its a plant. Cocaine is a drug because it has to be man made first. With cannabis it can merely be picked. Also no deaths have ever occured from cannabis directly. Ok maybe a few, but its a lot less that alchohol, or tobacco, or anything else like normal non drug activity which holds a higher death chance than using a safe and freely growing durable plant which frees your mind from the rhetoric of nazis and fascist control freaks. who use google earth to scheme on how to steal profits from such a bust.
