Are the pictures on Google Earth in real-time?

Are the pictures on Google Earth in real-time? If I look at my street via Google Earth on the computer at 6:00pm, can I see my kids playing outside (if indeed they are outside at that time)

Major cities in a given distance

An odd search question; how would I go about looking up something like, "Give me a list of major cities (100,000 population or more) with 2000km of Tulsa, OK". My googlefu is failing me.

A Legend in the Making

You are taking a walk around a public place in your city or town. This place is relatively new to you. If you had the opportunity to annotate a map and 'mark up' five categories of interest or experience, which five categories or types of sites might you choose to identify? Sensory experience? Social interaction? Sites of commerce? None of the above? Be as specific or general as you please.

Tour Para Bien Estar

I had the great fortune of recently running into this fine fellow, who is currently in the middle of riding his bike from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska clear to Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, all in the name of raising money for a youth home for at risk and abused teens in Alaska. Apparently, and unbeknownst to me, he has been wintering here in my home town of Missoula, MT for the past few months, but I only recently met him. We got to talking about his website, and he mentioned that he had been on the hunt for an easy way for him to mark his progress on a map for visitors and friends to follow. I, being the fairly technically minded guy that I am, would like to help with that. [more inside]

Out-of-the-box Web2.0/Google Maps?

Mapping thousands of locations

Location mapping. I want to map a couple of thousand points (latitude/longditude, csv/excel) across America and come up with a pretty picture as a result. Currently I'm thinking of using gmaptrack or the Yahoo! map API. Any alternate suggestions? Software is fine. I may also have to map the location of some chains across America to which I don't have the location data (but will come up in a google map search), any idea on how to do this?

Are maps and blueprints on the 'net a security risk?

I often get called to appear on the nightly news whenever they need a guy to talk about computers, the internet or blogging. This time, it's a piece about "how terrorists use the net to organize and plan attacks" to be aired in a series for the week leading up to 9/11. In my segment, I will use my Google-fu to demonstrate how easy or hard it is to dig up maps and blueprints, especially for "sensitive" places. I'm trying to make sure the facts get out there, but I also want to do my bit to counter any scaremongering. My question: Can anyone point to sites or articles that discuss whether or not such publicly-available maps, diagrams and blueprints are a real security risk?

Make many points on Google Maps

How do people create Google Maps with a lot of different points selected, like this? Is there an easy way to do this from the main Google Maps site or do you have to have some extra programming done? I'd really like to enter two or three addresses and mark all their points on the same map (without having to do directions, and thus the route between them).
