Hawkeye over Montréal
● I heard on the radio about a web-site that had been created for the city of Montréal. It is definitly worth checking if you have a fast Internet connection. Go to this link: Navigation Urban. Click on "Cliquez ici pour démarrer." and wait for the page to be loaded. You will have a map of Montréal island. On the toolbar at the right, select "Orthophotos 2002" and then zoom in anywhere you wish. This is a map of Montréal with different layers that you can choose from. The one that you chose is a layer that adds sky-photos of the whole island to the map - taken in 2002. This is really amazing, you can zoom in anywhere and see how it looked like from the sky in 2002.
