Here's an aerial shot of the house in which I grew up, on Third Avenue in Iowa City:
To the east (right) of the cul de sac is the Herbert Hoover Elementary School, and the big open space to the north is Iowa City High School.
So cool, I'm adding it to the list of links following the blogroll on the right.
Where have you been? I've been using Terraserver since 2000 to research real estate investments, but I admit it took a 17 year-old nephew to tell me about it. It was extremely helpful in finding potential wetland regulatory problems on properties in which I thought major renovations might be needed.
Terraserver was wholly owned by Microsoft at one point (and might still be but you would not know it from their web site). But, it is also a lot of fun just to see familiar places from space.
