Follow Your World Notifies You When Satellite Images Update

Satellite images update infrequently enough to make manually checking for new photos of interesting locations impractical; automate the process with notifications from Follow Your World.

Courtesy of Google, the Follow Your World tool allows you to plug in locations and receive email updates when the satellite images for that location are updated. Whether you’re looking for crisp high-res images of monuments around the world or shots of your own backyard, it’s easy to set it up and wait for the updates to roll in.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.
