    Google earth has updated its imaging of Ames and even has the birdseye view. You can see the new scoreboard and tunnel now!

    It would be helpful if you linked it so that us lower level, lazier nerds don't have to look for it.

    Re: For you map nerds like me

    Google Earth street view is still from fall of '07.

    I know this because my red ****-box Dodge Neon is still parked in the yard at 103 S. Hyland Ave.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: For you map nerds like me

    We noticed they had updated recently when we looked and our spring patio project was on the map. I can even say the picture was most likely on a Tuesday since our garbage can is at the end of the drive.
