    I see my house (USA only)

    I just found this cool thing that lets you view your house from pictures taken by a satellite. I'm glad that when the picture was taken for my home that I wasn't outside on one of my usual urinating off the back porch routines. It can all be found here:

    Whoa.

    I haven't found my digs yet, but the main Interstate that runs through here is a good guideline to follow.

    That's freaky! The photos are old but it's still pretty cool. Thanks!

    Odd to see your home more than 8 years ago. I just used the advance search to find my place. Just a warning, my house was pointed out as being on the other side of the road, so don't be discouraged if it isn't pointing exactly at your home.

    Caesar, just use the advanced search and choose the address version. There you can put in your address and stuff. It will bring up the pages that your house would appear on. It's easier then trying to navigate the map. Especially once your zoomed in.

    Thanks, but since I'm planning to skydive home from work tomorrow, I'll need the reference photos.

    The actual photo page says October 3, 1995 but the initial address page says that the aerial photo is from 6/1/1994. Just from the photo I can see some structural changes of other buildings around me.

    I found my parent's house the hard way (clicking across a Turnpike in Zoom mode) before I opened my eyes and found the Advanced search feature.

    Next search...Miami Beach at Spring Break!

    Kind of neat. I just moved into my house a few months ago. The pictures of mine are from 1994. Interesting to see how little stuff was around here then.

    My area showed 1994 when I clicked on it but showed Sept. 2001 when the picture loaded. I didn't realize that the date was different at first and was puzzled why certain buildings were built and other were razed. "I know that wasn't there in '94." But with my amazing grasp on the English language I finally read the page and saw the date.

    Go the famous landmarks page and they have some quick links to some interesting stuff. Twin Towers from '94.

    Also checking the local airport it seems they took a picture a day that I was at work looking back at my logbook. There's a pretty good chance that I'm in this picture somewhere.
