Is there any trick to clearing up the view when zoomed in on your property ? Is the version you pay for any better ? Anyone know?

I found it to be a pain in the butt to navigate that site. I went ahead and paid the $14.95 a year for www.mapcard.com.

They have some site problems today, but it is at least easy to work.

Google earth is a neat toy, and useful for finding directions and such. Some areas just aren't clear when you look at the aerials though. I use a tool that gets aerials and topos from the microsoft terraserver database. Its called USAPhotomaps. You can download it free at www.jdmcox.com. Its very GPS friendly. You need a waypoint to start with and just go from there.

after reading this i got google earth, and woohooo is it neat. i cant find my house because i am in one of those blurry green areas. it seems like you have to be close to a big city to see clearly. I did find my camp though, it seems pretty clear there. i found my uncles house, yard, the camp, the layout of the creek. pretty cool stuff. I am impressed on how it shows elevation if you change your angle so you are on the ground looking parralel.
im chekcing out usaphotomaps right now

Try www.mapmart.com

Click on aerial photo
click on begin search.

Navigate with the topo map and then click on the aerial link.
This is the site that I have been using for years. Better clarity and you can zoom on what you want to zoom on. No set frames like terraserver.
