Can you read the letters and numbers on the number plate in this picture? For reasons that should remain confidential at this point, we are trying to track down the company that owns it. Unfortunately, the photo has a significant amount of motion blur (in two directions) and graininess, and Photoshop is not helping. (The only program that seems to handle the deblurring required, Amped Five, is expensive commercial software not available for casual use such as this.) This is a Swedish number plate, so the first three should be letters, the last three digits. Note how the last two digits look like '3' but not quite. None of the searches we have done on the Swedish Transport Agency's web site match a semi of this size.

Why are satellite photos upside down? When looking at satellite pictures of cities in the northern hemisphere on Google maps, buildings that are leaning away from me are leaning towards the bottom of the screen.

I'm wondering if any mefites have a better solution out there. [more inside]
