Is Google Earth’s imagery update schedule not frequent enough for you? Aerials Express now promises to deliver its most recent US city imagery directly as a dynamic network link in Google Earth. It’s beta, and it will be offered as premium content (=pay) but there is a free demo of six regions.
I can imagine that plenty of real estate agents would be willing to pony up for such content. The only problem: When I use the demo I get overlays that simultaneously seem unrelated to the area I’m looking at and of much lower resolution than what Google Earth already has. Sure it’s beta and all, but if you write a press release, that’s your one big chance to impress. Does it work for anyone else?
[Update 21:08 UTC: Frank Taylor emails to say it’s a Mac issue. Fair enough, as I’m on a Mac:-) But the moral of the story needs to be: If you’re a company developing for Google Earth, get yourself a Mac Mini for testing, or else tell us it hasn’t been tested on the Mac. Google Earth is a consumer GIS product.]
