More on Google’s Satellite Images

Flickr users have gone nuts with posting screenshots of Google Maps’s new satellite photo feature (see previous entry), if the “map” and “maps” tags are any indication. There’s also a new Flickr group called Memory Maps, the idea of which “is to take a satellite image of your neighborhood from your childhood, and use ‘notes’ to tell the story of you growing up.”

On a related note, Jason Kottke argues that the hullabaloo about Google Maps, as compared to other services that have been offering similar features, boils down to a superior user experience that makes Google Maps much more fun to play around with — which, given all the Flickr foolery linked to above, is plain to see.
