I was hyping Google Earth to my brother-in-law and sister last night as I drove them back from the airport and when we got home I pulled it up and punched in the address for their new home in Monroe, Louisiana. No high-res data! I wonder how Google Earth determines which areas they store high-res data for and which ones they don’t — seems logical that they would use something like population density. I would have thought that they’d simply have the entire United States covered. However they determine that, I don’t like hyping something only to fall flat on my face when I go to demo. Curse you Google Earth!!
If anyone’s curious about why they are moving to Monroe, it’s because my brother-in-law has recently taken a job with CenturyTel.
