Also all other foreign countries too, like e.g. Iraq`s Bagdad with some holes. Just Nato-military places are maked up a little bit.

that's hilarious. I guess they finally got around to adding other countries. At first I think it was only the US. Is there a way to print a JPG of a google map/satellite image?

I have not found any possibilities to make a jpg-file with earthgoogle.

But there`s a trick:

1. You must have installed "ghostscript" and a free pdf-maker like:
http://freepdfxp.de/fpxp.htm
If you use Mac, search on the typical forums for it.

2. Press the printer-button on the left corner, the printer-setup-dialog appears and choose out the pdf-maker, not the usally printer.

3. You will get a pdf-file and change those into a jpg-file with Photoshop or similar programms.

Voila, my sweet home:

Do you know the coordinate for those famous "area51"?
I like to see it. Is it big? Did they made a retouche or not?

does that link work?


I just type that in google then click on "Satellite". Is that different from they way you got your maps, the earth.google?


I'll see if I can pull up some shots from my area.

YES, thx

"Is that different from they way you got your maps, the earth.google?"

I download the programme earth.google, installed it went with it into web and have a more 3-d-panorama of big mother.

These data are not very up to date, maybe 2-3 years old.

But at all, never saw something like this before and everyone here around is happy to see his birthplace etc...
