For those of you who don't know:

By clicking on the "IMAGES" search at the top of Google's home page, you can enter a word or term and get a picture of the object in question, sometimes resulting in instant recognition and an epiphany "Oh - that's an xxxx"

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand glossaries.

Very interesting Jul 5, 2005

Thanks, Jeff, I did not know about this before, and it is likely to come in very useful. I have just tested it out on dogs and cats, and got lots of sweet cat and dog pictures. However, seriously, there are so many times when I come across a peculiar German word and I would like to say to someone, "Show me what the thing looks like, and then I will know the English word for it."

So, thanks very much for this extremely useful snippet of information.

Images, too Jul 6, 2005

Google maps is a fairly new invention from Google. It offers maps, city plans and (that's the best part) satellite images of the world.
Image resolution for most cities lets you see individual cars on streets. Images are said to be "current but not real-time".

Real time images are available through NASA's Worldwind software (free to download and use), but refreshing the images requires massive computer resources and an internet connection the size of the Nile.

Google maps are here:
