Historical Satelite/Aerial photos available

GlobeXplorer, a major provider of satellite and aerial photo data, has just introduced a new feature to its ImageAtlas aerial/satellite map viewer that allows users to instantly pick, compare, and purchase images from multiple dates. In particular users will be able to use a pull down menu to select from all the different images available from GlobeXplorer. While the range of images available will vary greatly by the location, in some major metropolitan areas the images will go back 15 years or more. Although Google and others have gotten a lot of the press it is good to see some innovation in the aerial/satellite image arena beyond simple map directions.
