Google Maps Super-Zoom

Yes, that really is a screenshot of a Google Maps view showing a couple of guys, their camels, and a yak. Philipp Lenssen of Google Blogoscoped has details showing how it's possible to zoom-in beyond the normal limit for the satellite views of certain areas in Google Maps. (If you're really impatient or skeptical, here is a direct link to the Google Maps view.)

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like they have similar high-res imaging for the Java logo on Sun's SCA14 Building. If anyone in the area happens to be a pilot (or has some other way of obtaining such an aerial image), let me know. I could probably weave it into our own map.
