Cool site has this where you type in an address and you can pick out your neighborhood and house. I tried to download Google Earth which has this but i have dial up and it requires broadband/cable. But there are other sites and I found my house. This site only refers to the US and some only have black and white photos while others have color photos. I was able to see little details and definately saw my home. Try and see what you find!

If you dont have google earth and meet the requirments you can use that to find your house. The download is free or check this other site(no download needed) to locate your neighborhood home. Zooom in as close as you can. Do you see your car? Look for a friends house too. Pretty cool :)

I wish terraserver had canada as well. Google earth and worldwind are awesome. I love maps. I just wish they were higher res like the terraserver ones.
