Google Earth - Whats it for??

#5
I read about this place, one lazy summers afternoon at xxxxxxxxx, with not a lot else to do but go through a load of 'stuff in folders' just because I could and others couldn't.

It's a form of BGT (Chinese style) 'Birdtable'.

Looking at the above link and the 'bootnote';

"Thanks to Ken Welch for the tip-off."
Surely not 'our Kenny'?

You need some obliques to get an impression of the buildings to photo east of the model, plus the image should be rotated 90 degrees...jesus sorry, slipped into IA mode.

What's it for? It's for trying to find your house when nothing's happening here. But that gets boring after the fourteenth time. I try finding birds sunbathing topless in their gardens too. Nothing to report.

If you have a spanking A0 printer at work, Google Earth is what you use to make large prints of other peoples houses and then charge 'em £15 a time for. Not me, obviously, because that would be stealing from the Army................... Like taking batteries..............and stationery............................

Well, it does beat carrying a model kit for orders comprising of a bit of string, some compo and picking up some pebbles to make a model which looks like the approach route to Snowdonia. :p
