    I am sure most of you guys have seen or used google earth... I love it... There is also a good site called http://maps.live.com/ Whats cool about this site is when you zoom in to a small area it gives you an option called BIRDS EYE VIEW, which allows a North, South, East, and West 3 dimensional view of the area... Pretty cool and usefull. I dont know if all areas over the country are covered but Long Island works great...

    Yup...

    Use that site exclusively...bring up a property on it before I go to do an estimate...gives me a great idea on what to be quoting well before I arrive. Very cool stuff...

    Excellent. Those bird's eye pics are the older Google Maps sat. photos. In my area, the old pics were during the winter (apparently) and they've since updated the pics to something more recent taken in the summer, at sunset. So the trees are full of leaves, and the shadows block out almost everything. www.maps.live.com is much better for me. Cool.
