Make those GPS maps while you can...: "

Pictured above is a map of where we jog in Seattle that we made with our
Garmin Forerunner GPS watch along with an application
called USAPhotoMaps which uses Microsoft’s
TerraServer
. We showed folks how to do this here,
pretty neat huh?




This may not be possible to ever do again if a
new Senate Bill passes which would take all sorts
of satellite imagery like this away from the public because someone could possibly do something bad with it. Are they
really worried that Microsoft’s TerraServer could be used as a TerrorServer?
