  • maps — very high resolution aerial photos of central London - much higher than Google Earth. You can even see people. I've been hesitating to highlight this because somehow they've got their synchronisation of their sets of aerial photos wrong: when you use the "super zoom" you find you're suddenly looking at a location fifty or so metres away. Quite annoying.
