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 a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
