If you go to Mapblast or Google maps you can see overhead and street side images but they are from months or years ago. Is there any website that gives this view in real time or even with a few hours delay?

Drive down the road to the Pentagon and ask nicely. smile

I'm not aware of any realtime aerials available to the public.

Even if such a site were possible, the possibilities for misuse are too numerous to mention. Congrats...this is possibly the most unreasonable request I think I have ever seen.

You might get lucky with local cams for road conditions but that's about it. You'll have to google them but I've used a few cams that are publicly available outside businesses to monitor road and weather conditions for road trips.

Since I don't work at NORAD, not possible. Wasn't GPS highly regulated by the government until it was offered in cars? I can imagine this being along the same lines. What more misuse could there be than currently available traffic cams and webcams. Any sensitive areas could automatically be blurred out like they already do.

I would be able to see who goes to your house, when they are there/leave, basically anything that a stalker or attacker would want to know in order to plan something.

A city center isn't a sensitive area, but with real time feeds an individual could develop a time map of not only peak congestion and peak emptiness, but also specific areas where the population is most dense. Using these two points one could conceivably determine not only the best locations to place ordnance, but also the best times to avoid detection and inflict maximum damage.

While this is an extreme example, it's a very real example that could easily occur. Similar things have been accomplished with less precise data.

GPS wasn't regulated, it just had some limitations some of which I believe are still in effect. It's a satellite signal so hard for them to block it. They had select availability which reduced the accuracy of the GPS signal, but they turned that off so it's more accurate but still has accuracy issues due to weather patterns and other issues with the signal. Still has some limitations like not working when going over 1000mph, that's so missiles can't use, otherwise not an issue even when flying. You should try it when you're on a plane, pretty interesting getting your ground speed and watching it go nuts trying figure out a driving route when you're over a lake.

It's big bucks to get a real time satellite image. If you could do it for the entire US, it'd cut down on a lot of crime. Probably why it has to be one of the most outrageous request ever on here.

Isn't using a GPS on a commercial airliner prohibited like cellphones are? And I thought I saw them doing this on CSI Miami a while back to monitor a bad guy on the highway. BTW, I wasn't requesting this, just asking if it is available. Why is it outrageous? Aren't millions of telephone calls, TV shows, remote car unlocking, etc. done with satellites? Having realtime images would be the next logical step beyond the current dated images.

Somewhat grey area. It's really a receiver, not a transmitter. Plus airplanes can have their own GPS also. Lots of devices like a tablet have built in GPS systems and even if your phone is on airplane mode, GPS may still work, never tried it.

Logical to you if you don't know anything about technology. Do you know how much data is involved in a picture, let alone real time imaging? Do you know how much data you take up just streaming a TV show? Do you know how much data it would take to provide real time streaming of street level detail for the entire US? And how much it would cost for all that?

......"I thought I saw them doing this on CSI Miami a while back to monitor a bad guy on the highway.".......

So...the basis for your question is what you think you saw on a bad fictional police drama broadcast by an outlet of the main stream media? Congrats yet again...I can see that CBS has indeed successfully reached their target audience.

Yeah, it's pretty amazing the liberties they take on those shows. Like how DNA results come back in minutes. I did like how there was one James Bond movie where they cut the air lines to the truck and then the guy had no brakes instead of stopping because in real life on a truck when you have no air in the lines, the brakes are applied.
