You can't escape it. The technology is high above our heads floating in space. Today anybody with a computer has access to the peering eyes of satellites thanks to Google Maps and its satellite function. Through the images, you can really see how life on the ground changes the landscape. Here's some stuff that I found while being nosy high above Albuquerque.

A heart-shaped thingy near the Sunport. I assume planes use this to do u-turns:


The grass really is greener on the other side in this part of Northeast Albuquerque:


A Mayan Temple in ABQ? Nah...just the Marriott Pyramid:


Now where did I park my car???? Found near the Sunport:


Big plane, little plane also near Sunport:


Huge Blue Roof, District Court, Downtown:


Now just imagine....this is technology that's to available to anyone with a computer. Can you imagine what the government has? If you like being nosy, there's a website for people like you and me. It's called Google Sightseeing. Have fun you nosy neighbor---and keep your eyes off my lawn!

Google maps are cool. For another type of view, go to http://local.live.com, enter Albuquerque, NM. Then click the "Bird's Eye" link. Rinse, Wash, Repeat.

Awesome pix...Wondered why that Cessna is constantly circling overhead...
ABQ is ahead of the curve on Google maps...Many locations here when typed in, have a 'street view' now (I Googled a number of other cities where this is Not happening yet and, Yes, I have looked up every single address I ever lived once, too.).
