TerraServer, the Microsoft project intended to show off the data processing capabilities of SQL Server 7.0 had a quiet launch at www.terraserver.microsoft.com.

(We expect the competition with IBM's U.S. Patent Server site at www.patents.ibm.com to be fun!) The idea is for you to be able to look up any satellite-photographed spot on the globe-including your own neighborhood. Right now, the database consists primarily of photos from the U.S. and Europe, but according to the site, the collection is quickly expanding.
