Google has a new mapping service
that includes worldwide satellite photos.

http://maps.google.com

Detail is lower in the more rural areas away
from major population centers.

Just type in an address, town name, country
and a street map will appear. Click "Satellite"
in the upper right corner and a satellite photo
of the exact area will appear.

You can also lookup local businesses such as
hotels in the area if you plan to visit.

That's a pretty fun site to visit. I was able to zoom in on a project I'm working on, and it had decent clarity. Thanks for the tip.
