Google Releases Very High Resolution Imagery for Las Vegas
Google Earth Blog: Google Releases Very High Resolution Imagery for Las Vegas
Today Google released some very high resolution (3 inches) imagery for a part of Las Vegas. You can see an example here of the Luxor Hotel (a pyramid with mirrored windows). If you visit the Luxor Hotel in Google Earth, and lower yourself (or zoom) to see in detail, you can easily read advertisements on the side of the building, see cars reflected in the windows, and if you look around the area you can not only make out car types, but can even see people (and their shadows). Look close, you'll see me standing there!
