Question Live Satellite Images....

....is there a free and legal way to get these online??

In particular, images of a non-tech-savvy colleagues' investment property on the NSW South Coast?

This is the time of the year that all Bowls Clubs rip up their Greens and laser level and grow new TIFF Dwarf grass seems to be the field renovation season even for the SCG

I must say that's an awesome website. Thanks for sharing. Seems to have a much higher resolution than Google in the major cities/towns and is right up to date! Having fun checking out sights over different periods of time. Good for time wasting!

Nearmap is fantastic!
Have a look at the 'multiview' option top left hand side - when zoomed in to a certain level.
It shows N E S W side angle shots of the area you are looking at. At a high enough res you could possibly look into windows
