Stalking Made Easier

Thanks to the tip from Palla Palla, Chicagoist has been browsing around the new and improved satellite imagery on Google Maps. Palla Palla pointed out how nice the detail on Marina Towers is and we're quite fond of it too.

Google's official blog says that they've updated the Google Local database to match the coverage they have in Google Earth and they've added 2 more zoom levels to Google Local's Satellite mode. Now you can see a lot more detail than you used to be able to.

Google Maps satellite view itself is old news, but with this new and improved feature we've just caught a renewed interest in looking at everything all over again. We all agreed that Navy Pier is pretty stupid, but it looks pretty cool below. What are your favorite views?
