Google Maps & Google Satellite

Google now offers Google Maps, a source of online maps and driving directions: http://maps.google.com. These are more than just maps, however, Look up an address, click anywhere in the map, then use your computer's arrow keys. See how you can "drive" around?

In addition to maps, Google offers satellite imagery of many US locations. When you look up a map, check for a "Satellite" link on the top right-hand side of the page. Here's a satellite view of the Edwards Public Library.
