This is really cool. For one, it's fun as a user to see the actual images as close up as they are. For a small business owner, a potential customer can have the chance to see their neighborhood via satellite.
Couldn't find a direct link, but on Keyhole's main page
, there's an FAQ pop up that reads "will I be able to see my house?". It tells how close and how recent the images are in different metropolitan areas throughout the world.
I really like this as an addition to their local business center
. Show your location, address, hours of operation, method of payments, and now a satellite map... for free. Too cool.
