Google Maps - Satellite

Google Maps now lets you look at a satellite photo of the area you are interested in. Interestingly, they have a full resolution photo of the White House and the Pentagon, but have fuzzed up the photo of the Capitol. Here is my home town and my wife's home town. Any guesses?

I really like this addition to Google Maps too! I've played with the KeyHole trial version, which I enjoyed thoroughly. It's nice to have some of the same information available in a plain ol' browser!

While the outline of the White House isn't blurred, I think they've doctored the photo by painting the rooftop that uniform putty color.

Something similar was done in a more obvious way with the buildings on either side, where the rooftops are blocked out (green) and the interior courtyards are blurred.
