    If you look photos at both sites you will see that they are the same topos. These topos are over five years old. I know this because of the vehicles that are parked at my house.

    Sorry about that. I am on dial up so I don't usually have the patience to wait for the darn things to load. It does seem though that the google maps are a lot slower loading. But that could just have been my patience level at the time.

    They definitely updated the Sebago area...my in-laws place is in hi-def.

    They did the same with the Topsham/Bruniswick area recently. I can see my house now!

    Interestingly enough, the imagery reads (C)2006 but I would judge is at LEAST 5 years old, based on some of the changes to the area in the last 5 years.

    I'd love it if they put the actual year on the photograph data, so you knew how old it was.

    On the other hand, it's become my #1 mapping tool, especially with the Geocaching KML from geocaching.com showing all the caches for me, and all the fantastic overlays and other data. Just toooo cooool for words.
