Terraserver Site Map Notes

The aerial images in these links are from the Microsoft Terraserver.

Image Orientation

In many "TerraServer" aerial photos, the given image was made from a high-altitude aircraft passing north of the area photographed, and thus the view is actually looking south. Consequently, if you save the image as a `jpg` file, and rotate it 180 degrees (using `PhotoEditor` software, or similar), the image will appear much more normal. Buildings, radar towers, and other structures will be easier to distinguish and recognize. The view of the former Cottonwood AFS, ID, is one that is in this category; when viewed "upside down," the image instantly becomes more recognizable, especially the former AN/FPS-24 radar tower.
