Google seems to have tons of products that they just turn loose on the public to see which ones take hold. They don’t always publicize them so you are sometimes on your own to find them. Yesterday, I stumbled across this neat one that will notify you via email when the Satellite imagery of a point of interest you define gets updated. Pretty interesting to see when the Google satellites snap a new picture of your house, neighborhood or other place of interest. Not available for Street Views though (unless there’s another random project I haven’t stumbled upon yet).
Login in and Check it out but depending on where you live, you might not get a notification for months or years. Google’s Follow Your World is not a good site those craving instant gratification.
