Google Maps


The image shows a satellite view of Portman Road from Google Maps.

Portman Road - Click for Large

Note that South is to the bottom of the map, which gives the time at perhaps eleven in the morning. The long shadows indicate that this picture was probably taken in the winter. the pitch is covered in plastic, which also happens during the winter.

This type of mapping is excellent for all sorts of purposes.

We've been trying to use it to locate the direction of the drains on a field on the stud. Not very successfully, I should say, as there isn't a high definition image of the farm on Google and what images there are were taken at the wrong time of year.
