Microsoft Live Maps is a satellite mapping application in direct competition with Google Maps and a few others. Microsoft just added a large amount of photo images taken from planes. It produces 3.8 tera-bytes of additional data. But this mostly means more details and some of the images are taken at a slightly slanted angle that helps you recognize the buildings, for example.
