    Google Earth(AMAZING stuff)

    Google has quite secretly been developing a new program called "Google Earth". Its similar to NASA's WorldWind program, but much better. With GE (Google Earth) i can zoom right into the town i live in. I can even see the school i used to go to, and even more amazing is that i can pinpoint my house and our car outside it!

    Download it at http://desktop.google.com/download/earth/index.html

    (Currently downloads are taken off due to traffic, but will be up soon)

    I've seen something like this, I think it was called GeoQuest, but it was just Melbourne. Either way, I can't find sh!t, it needs the names of suburbs..

    It's the same as WorldWind. I'm fairly sure Google bought it out.
