I don't know how many reading this know of a wonderful online feature for anyone wanting to see what a place looks like from a roadway or street in the state. Much (if not most) of the state has been filmed in 360 degree panoramic views so that you can literally move along a road or street and swivel around to see what the area looks like as you move along. And you can set the view to the full screen of your monitor which gives a nice detail.

GOOGLE MAPS - STREET VIEW (not sure, but the Google Earth software may also have the same images).

I tried to upload this image to this thread but it wouldn't work for some reason, but you can view the screen capture of one spot on NM-117 here, on my web page:

I guess you are talking about Google Maps Google Maps or Google Earth? I'm sure there are other companies doing it or sharing the data.

Thank you. I had to edit my first post and edited that part right out, so now I've re-edited to include that reference.

I use both Google Maps and Google Earth. The Google Maps street views are pretty neat. They still don't have full coverage, even in the major cities. I find some areas which are missing. But still pretty neat.
