    Where I live, it is the same photos as google and the map overlay is more accurate. What is better than google?

    I found oz on there last time I looked. There are no maps or sattelite photo close ups of australia for free on the net that I know.
    It has something to do with the big map companies such as UBD having all the copyright to maps.
    They sell the close ups if you want them.

    That's pretty cool but that photo (at least in my area) is at a minimum 2+ years old. Probably closer to 5 years old

    Worked fine for me... I found Perth, Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne, AU.. Didn't search for anything else..

    Google is still better that MSN.. Aerial photo's of my area on MSN were over 10 years old. Google's aerials were less than 2...

    I was referring to Earth Google. But both work fine when searching for the larger AU cities...
