Coolest Free Program

I was recently introduced to Google Earth, and I have to say that it is one extremely cool program. First of all, it’s free. Secondly, it has detailed satellite pictures of whole the planet. Thirdly, the user interface is extremely slick. In fact, slick would be an understatement.

If you choose to download and install this program, you can see where we live. Our placemark is here. (placemark deleted because some scumbag will probably ransack our house in search of our fly rods. If you want to know our coordinates/tag, leave a comment!

I’ve been geotagging my photos hosted on Zooomr, and I imagine there are (or will be) ways to tie these two interfaces together. There’s probably some type of geotag community sharing thing in the works.

    You might not want to geotag your photos of your house though, Crooks might like what they see and know where to go..

  2. I was thinking about that Tony. Maybe I’ll remove the tag. On the other hand, there are more than enough people where I live that are willing to break into our house…
