Yeah it is pretty cool. Too bad they are 6-12 months behind as chatham does not look like that anymore. Still a very cool tool for getting ideas of places to fish.

That seems cool. I also am on a mac though. Bummer.
Have you all used Google Maps? maps.google.com
you can zoom right in anywhere with a "satellite view" that's very cool. You can definitely check out some fishing spots with it.
Also, for directions, it's much easier than mapquest.

Sounds like a fun place to visit but my Spyblocker gave it a very high risk rating for getting stung, so I will not be going there :confused:

Awesome tool!! Word of caution if you use it to plan trips, I looked at my girlfriend's apartment (she's lived there for two years) and it's still a dirt lot in the image. Guessing the delay could be up to three to four years in some areas.

Dave -

Did you check out Turks and Caicos? I can also see why Los Roques is worth the puddle jump from Aruba for those bent on bones. Andros is the mecca... for a lodge trip. That Cuban shoreline looks mind-blowingly vast and I would bet it's untapped.

I'll bet Penguin could tell us a little bit about a certain section of that shoreline...OOPS! THAT'S CLASSIFIED!! Never mind....

And I thought I was the only one behind. I just can't seem to justify the $$$ just to surf...

Darn thing won't work for me... It can't login to the server when it starts up! I have no idea why...

Scott,

Didn't know about it, ... downloaded, ... loaded and ran no problem here and I run through a maze of fireWalls to get out of the Office here ;)

Logged in no problems.

I hate to admit this, but I'm an IT manager with 9 years in the industry and I still don't know why it doesn't work... The only thing I can figure is that it doesn't work with the Mozilla browser.

Wow... great application. Same base data as NASA Worldwind, but more info.

The ability to overlay driving directions on top of everything is very cool!
