    Question Google Maps..WOW!

    Maybe I missed the official announcement...but today I just discovered that I can get a street-level view of my own home, the streets surrounding it and almost all the streets in Hemet and San Jacinto....if I left the door open I'd be able to look right inside the living room.

    Kewl is not a good enuff word!

    When did this happen? Was I out for a while and the anesthesia just wore off?

    I tried it on a few friends' homes..and one or two had their garage doors opened and I could see my tool box in one of them..and another driveway had my Isuzu parked in it..and that hadda be just last week too.

    WOWIE!

    Assuming this is Google Streetview, they have been running their cars around Auckland and Christchurch for a while now.

    As for google maps, yep, they've mapped out most of NZ

    Hi Joe. Have you got a swimming pool? I read this week in a British paper that local gangs of youths are using this facility to seek out backyard pools and then invading them - often in the middle of the night - and leaving drink bottles and other junk in them. Great facility....

    Nope..no pool......

    Got a question though.

    Can anybody tell me how this works:

    The latest version of Google Earth added a layer for geotagged YouTube videos. So far, it seems like a lot of people are using this feature for documenting landmarks, attractions and live recordings of things like music, sporting events, backpacking trips, urban skateboarding, etc.

    If you have a geospatially relevant video that you want to put on the map, it's pretty easy. Just upload your video to YouTube, open the "Date and Map Options" tab in the video information panel, and drag the marker to the correct location. You can zoom in to get a more precise location, or just enter the lat/lon manually with the following format: "geo:lat=yy.yyyy geo:lon=xx.xxxx".

    Where do I find the black bold-ed part?

    I've looked all over the place and I cannot see it.

    Do I look in YouTube or Google Earth for that?

    I have a YouTube vid I want to install at a spot in Hemet, California.

    I think you answered your own question. Or do you want to know where the video information panel is...
