Eye On Olympia

Google in your back yard...

The online search company Google has put searchable satellite photos online at http://maps.google.com/ . (Type a location into the search box and click on "satellite.")

The images vary in resolution. If you're looking for a photo of the state capitol, it's pretty blurry. But the images of the Spokane region are quite good -- it's easy to make out individual rooftops of the big buildings in downtown Spokane, and you can almost make out the color of individual cars.
