A Fun Toy

From, bird's-eye views of most of the St. Louis area:

Cahokia Power Plant, for a starting point.

The level of detail is incredible. And since the photos are all taken on an angle, buildings and landmarks are easily identifiable. It's a phenomenal resource, and a fascinating new way to look at familiar places.

The photos appear to date from about 2005.
