The assessor's website for Hennepin county has been upgraded to include oblique photos. I don't know if I like having so much information just a click away, but scouting Hennepin county with a combination of google.earth and this new set of aerial photos might be convenient for cache placers.

I've used this site a number of times because the images must have been taken in the fall and show much less tree cover than Google Maps.

They're just using maps.live.com's data. Just use that site in the first place and you don't have to worry about going through Hennepin County's site.

I have been using it when doing research for houses we have been looking at in WBL. We haven't actually found any that were worth the prices they were asking however.

SB, that is much better - cool oblique photos without snooping on people's financials.

Hey, I think I see myself mowing the lawn.

I just wish that Google would get off their dead, dying, rear-ends and add that support to their site. I honestly feel dirty using Microsoft's product and I really hate the interface (too much crap on the screen).

Very cool, thanks SB.
