Flash Earth

Flash Earth …satellite and aerial imagery of the Earth in Flash

I think I saw this briefly before and simply forgot to note it down. Flash Earth is a nice Flash based implementation of the various AJAXy maps we’ve come to know, love and expect. It gives a full-window view of the area, with panning and scrolling controls and a little search box. The images are sourced from a variety of tile providers, and the user can choose from Google, Microsoft, NASA, and others. Interestingly, I never knew that Ask is also in on the mapping game, and their images (of Gosport at least) appear far more recent than the other offerings.
