Google offers aerial photos

Wednesday, April 6th, 2005


Internet users can now search a vast library of satellite and aerial images that lets them zoom in on digital snapshots of an area.

Google Inc., which started as a search engine but after meeting with phenomenal success expanded into other areas, announced the service Tuesday as an upgrade of its existing map service linked to local business listings.

Google Maps users can now select either a satellite or aerial photograph rather than a map. Requesting the location of a specific business that is listed with Google will result in its location being pinpointed on the photograph.
