Yahoo! Maps Satellite Imagery

Satellite imagery was added to the Yahoo! Maps beta last night; high-resolution (1-metre) imagery is now available for the continental U.S.; the rest of the world must make do with medium-resolution (15-metre) imagery. Yahoo! says that they’ve also taken the time to process the imagery so that it doesn’t have the quilted appearance that Google’s satellite photos do, which is a nice touch.
