Google earth is good-if you live in europe or usa. Living down here in NZ, we find it hard to even find towns with google earth. I was searching google one day (i love google) and i came across a programme called WorldWind(made by NASA).

I will have to play with it a bit more as the resolution is very poor compared to Googlearth
