Holy Cow

Today or yesterday, Google Maps released "street views" for Dallas and Fort Worth. Basically, a high tech van drove down every street in Dallas and Fort Worth and took a 360 degree photo. You can go to any street and see what it looks like - just like you were driving or walking down it.

It takes a little experimenting, but the up and down and side to side arrows of your keyboard come in handy.

Here's a screenshot of the 7-11 at Western Center Boulevard.

Here. To get started, type in something like "Western Center Blvd. Fort Worth, TX". Search for it, then click "street view" and drag the little man anywhere there is a blue line.

Edit: Downtown Forth Worth

Edit: The neighborhood where the North Richland Hills lady was gunned down at her front door is here.
