          Its fun to play with, but it seems to not cache that much, and is always fetching it from the server. I tried setting my cache high but, meh. The maps and locations are really cool.

          World Wind is cool for just the satellite imagery.

              Lucky one.. As Icheb pointed out: not many places in Germany are that detailed..
              That's the end of that!

                    Probably for the best, it was getting really slow.

                        Oh, so it wasn't me?

                        I noticed it was really, really lagging on me. Guess they found too many people using it.

                          Last night it was okay but got progressively worse. I suppose as people found it they were hitting Google's servers pretty hard.

                          Hopefully they will also fix their cache, I was traveling the world and kept returning to one spot in my home town, and each time it needed to redownload the images which really slowed the whole thing down. If they kept a better (or bigger) cache, it shouldn't need to do that.

                          But it's still very cool. Hopefully we'll see even better improvements come.

                            This looks like Google's map system, but gone extreme. They should power the thing by AJAX and everything will be good.

                              I read about this earlier but wasn't able to use it since its down... probably because they were slashdotted
