    Default Digital Globe Mapping Data

    This is a fun tool to look up your house or a campground!

    Put in Monument Valley for instance. You can switch the axis of the orientation of the display and other cool stuff.

    Default I wish I could.

    No access to website for us UK visitors at this time. Shame!

    When you zoom in, the resolution is terrible. Google is a lot better in this respect.

    Default Zoom and some other stuff

    At the highest degree of zoom, I would agree -- but I really liked the flexibility of the axis and being able to rotate the maps.

    And mostly I encourage any company that can find a way to compete...

    And to Dave, I didn't realize that this was limited to USA IP customers?

    I'm not sure how this stuff works, but I think it has something to do with not meeting the General Data protection regulations in the UK that were updated last year. Had a few (but not many) similar problems with US sites. Don't go getting all tech with me now, I know nothing ! Haha.

    Default RTA Complies

    Aren't you glad that RoadTripAmerica.com does comply?

    It's was a bit of huge pain in the toosh -- but I guess it makes sense.

    Itís interesting to use but at least for the area where I live the pictures are at least 4-5 years old. Iím on a lake and 4-5 years ago our neighbor and us both replaced our boat docks, and the picture showing the area shows our old docks. Likewise an area Iím familiar with in Florida with a lot of new home development is showing open ground. I think Google Earth is more updated.

    Default Ideally, a 100-hour or less refresh cycle would be best!

    Good information -- the places I looked -- seemed to be up-to-date -- even showing construction going on -- and the crews are out there this week working away.

    But a long refresh period would not be ideal. Thanks for sharing this perspective.
