Default Nearmap (birds eye view of suburbs) - Australia

Hi All I live in Perth and although most of you are aware of Google there is a website called www.nearmap.com which is high resolution. It gives such clear detail on suburbs etc, so if you are at a stage of looking at potential areas you can have a look at the suburb for yourselves before you get here. Hope this helps

Nearmap is very good, the images are updated regularily...be careful what you do in the garden

My computer keeps shutting internet explorer each time I try and use it, it recovers the page, I type in the address and then it shuts it again.

The dogs are out in the yard playing in one of the shots too.

I really must get busy cleaning the rest of the debris off the front lawn and get it finished. Can't be showing anyone our place when it looks so crap.

Fairly new pictures too as there is a ceiling fan on my front that we put out for bulk rubbish at New Year.

You can actually go back in time by using the functionality in the top-right corner.

Most recent pic for my area is 31st December. But there's about 6 versions from last year.
