Go storm chasing via google!

Postby Rainbow Bright » Thu Feb 16, 2012 7:50 pm

So I have no idea where to put this - the photography section, storm chasing, southern WA weather...well it's here! I saw this when using google maps for work. If you search for Brookhampton Road in Kirup then head east, you eventually see a massive cell. I'm not sure if there's a fire in there either... You probably have to go about 1.5km along the road (on the other side of the state forest) before you get a good spot!

I've done that looking for something in Victoria.

Phew, I'm so not alone to that.

I usually look for cars on the Canning Stock Route or planes in the air :) I must be hard up for stuff to do.

Check out Near map. The business flies aircraft with cameras. The images are better than a sat and they are update every 2 months or so, so you can have a progressive birds eye view of things. There is also the ability to enable POI. Plenty of planes are marked...
