    Try it - type in your address, then click on Satellite view and zoom in for a closer look.

    If you built your coop in the recent past, the latest satellite photo may not have been taken of your area yet. My aerial view only shows the raised vegetable beds that have been there for ten years, not the coop (yet).

    We have too many trees to see anything. I had no idea there were so many pools around here though!

    ours was from when we didnt even own the house. more than 3 years ago. and it even had a blue roof from hurricane ivan. We purchased almost an entirely new house from the damage that our house sustained from ivan. awsome deal for us.

    interesting, from what I can tell the photo is more than 2 years old but less than 8. It was my grandmothers then and she was living with my aunt. And I can see tracks where my cousins kid was driving right thru the yard from their house across the street to his dads house on the other side of the field behind my house. [​IMG] the nerve. when i moved here I actually had to put up no tresspasing signs near the side yard because he and his dads family were walking right thru [​IMG]

    The photo of our house is 3-4 years old. I can see our old coop, which has been removed now. The new [​IMG] yellow person thing is kinda creepy. Shows the front of your house like you're standing there looking at at! It's fairly recent-I have last years' holiday wreath hanging on the door.

    No fair, we’re too far out in the sticks, our county road isn’t on the map. It tries to give me an approximate location but it’s not even close.

    I can see ours... but there was a ton of junk from the previous owners... not us. So it's an old photo.

    All I get is airplane view, can't zoom in anymore [​IMG] So much for making a stealth coop to fool the gov satellites.
