Ok so the title is misleading but Google just bought Keyhole, a satellite imaging website. Similar to Terra Server but with better features. These are the same types of maps used by the news companies during the begining of the Irag War (the current one). The features are very cool. The basic subscription is $30 but you can try it out for 7 days for free. I recommend the free trial. You may not have much use for it but it is cool to play with.
The areas I could see this being used for are city planners, real estate, mapping demographics, mapping where your customers are etc.... More corporate uses. If marketed correctly and the right features are added this could take off.
