    Check out this map: http://www.liveatc.net/feedmap/feedmap.html

    It lacks Irish coverage very much but go to london, its great!! You can nearly see the make of cars. And if you go to London City Airport, you can make out the lines in the wood that seperates the runway from the river :)

    BTW this isnt anything to do with Google Earth, its a seperate thing (its also Experimental, so it could change). Google Earth is better than this map, because it has good coverage in alot more places, but the London on this map is much better

    Enjoy it :)

    Oh yeah I forgot to mention, you have to zoom in really close to see the detail, it doesnt look much from medium zoom but zoom in the full way and you'll be impressed :)

    Jaysus, you live in Barking? I live at the UEL Barking campus now!


    Edit: The detail on the UEL campus is amazing!

    Unbelievable clarity! Again, the images are a couple of years old as my neighbour in Cambridge put down decking two years ago and there's none in this picture...unless it's so up to date it's a picture of the future! :eek: :D

    EDIT: Just realised that these images are quite old! In this picture you can see that the Gherkin (circular building site on right hand side of image) in central London is only at foundation level! NAtwest tower and Lloyds buildings looking strong as always :)
