Much like sites that you can rate items up or down, you can rate the best aerial photography via Google Earth screen shots.  There are some beautiful images and places to be discovered through this site.  The physical and human landscapes are both intermingled in this fantastic collection of images...be careful, it can be amazingly addictive.  Users can take there own screenshots to be included in the gallery, making this a user-based, participatory project.  For more from the producer of this site, see: http://paulrademacher.com

10 Places You're Not Allowed to See on Google Maps | Global education = global understanding | Scoop.it

I must say I'm fairly surprised there were not more then 10, unless that is just the number chosen for this article.

When I was working on my environmental classroom assignment I came across an area that I couldn't see from above, only the fence that wrapped around it. At first I thought that couldn't happen but it makes sense for government reasons.  a security reason.

although we like to think that we are able to go anywhere on the world wide web some locations are off limits. Google Earth allows us to see place we have never been. However, some place are not available for us to see due to security reasons. Google Earth has restricted the public to view certain images of locations.
