    Default aerial map websites

    Please provide what you think are the "best" websites for aerial maps. There was a post awhile back of various training grounds, but I can't find that post. I want to look up some training grounds. Thanks.

    Google Earth. Or if you want a map company, I will look for the company we used to get a map of Kelley Farms.

    Try FlashEarth.com. It uses imagery from several mapping progams, such as Google earth, Yahoo, ect.

    Yellowpages.com uses pictometry where coverage is available. I believe its based on 911 funding at the county level that determines the coverage. They flew my area last fall, you can view from 4 directions just like you were looking out the window of a small plane. Go to Maps and Directions, zoom in on the national map and take it from there. There is a tool bar on the left for map, aerial, and birdseye. I haven't had any luck using Netscape, only MS Explorer so far. I checked some ponds and you could actually see geese on it when you zoom in!

    Did you check to see if you can select different images, Hugh? Sometimes they will give you 3 or 4 options for the aerial imagery (or at least they used to). BLM or USGS fly those things every so often.

    Are those dogs of yours getting wet? It was so muddy this weekend I left the ducks alone.
