hope this is helpful

bing maps with the birdseye is a real good one to use.

Great feature for research! I just wish we could get the detail the government gets!!!

Now that is a great site. I will use it plus Google earth imagery for my government project! Great spy in the sky! LOL

Nice site. Little nicer with the closeups than Google Earth. Even a bit better than Bing maps. Nice closeups rather than birdseye. Anyone know how recent these images are?

FlashEarth v. Google Maps
The latter is MUCH sharper focus at close range. Note: Google MAPS, not Google EARTH.

Great research tool. Thank you.

Thank you OkieDigger. I am not new to MDing although still working on the research end which I find fascinating.:research: I have a hard time looking at those maps online. I don't know exactly what I am looking for... the laws I guess is what overwhelms me being that I am in White Plains with all of the historical sites. I would never want to break the law in any way... is there ways to see labels on the maps as to what is off limits? It feels so iffy... :?:

I really appreciate you adding this thread. We needed some new research links.
