Real-Time Aerial Photographs
Does anyone know of any sites on the internet where you can search an address and get a real-time aerial photo for that location? I need a photo of a construction sit for work and have had no luck finding a site that can do this.

I know they used to exist on basic map sites, but they are no longer there as an option, probably a national security issue.

Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated.

4. Rent-A-Blimp
There are companies that use small (relatively) radio-control or teathered blimps to provide real-time aerial video. Not sure what kind of rates they charge.

Except for scattered webcams that are in tall buildings or other vistas, I don't know of any sites that provide a real-time service like this.

5. Why do you need real-time?
Do you mean daily or hourly? Real-time means continuously ON.

Are you monitoring something?
