This is a fantastic mapping tool that could be helpful for certain kinds of travel planning, or just as a fun way to explore places.

If you're a photographer this could be a very handy tool to help plan your sightseeing in a new location. Or for a vacation you could find a sunnier side of a beach resort.

Thanks. As a photographer/filmmaker, very useful. I have other such programs, but this is more graphic. Useful for showing to client, when planning a shoot.
