Just found this cool world map program from NASA.

Here's the Link:
Worldwind Download Page (http://worldwind.arc.nasa.gov/)

Check out this area! 115.74067W 37.62957N with NLT landsat 7 enabled in the options.

Can you guess what 'AREA' this could be?

Some big Foo Fighters must be flying from this base as there's big circles in this 'AREA' http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

Consider this bit of text from the nasa site:

"World Wind lets you experience Earth terrain in visually rich 3D, just as if you were really there."

Thanks England, nice program, I'll be downloading it.

Google also has a satellite mapper that's pretty good http://maps.google.com/

Just been looking at that one as well. Just found somemore circles nearby. Try 115.98984W 39.75108N. One more tip, the program can be slow at rendering. Just give it a couple of minutes (Thats using a P4 3.06 GHz with 1 Gig mem.)
