High-Resolution Google Satellite Maps for the Rest of the World

Pyramids, uploaded by Alison Biggs.

Scavengeroogle and WorldChanging are among those who’ve discovered that Google Maps’s satellite imagery for the rest of the world just got a lot more detailed, with high-resolution images available for a number of cities and other locations outside North America. Which means a lot more interesting stuff can be viewed in close-up, as Alison discovers in this view of the Pyramids.

Update: As might be expected, Google Globetrotting is all over this.
