Time for an upgrade! satellites.pro (Way better res than GE in place like Africa and Russia.) Sentinel Hub Playground: Handy for finding ancient rivers (Switch over to moisture content) Perfect for deserts. loc.alize.us: Site is currently down... Fantastic place to find geotagged photos. Real sad that this is gone, but you can still contact owner and beg for a new lease of life? Was the only site with the proper cardinal ultra high res Google imagery.
apps.nationalmap.gov/3depdem/ If you live in the states and want to go mound hunting. (Please use carefully and check in with local universities if you find something. Do NOT publish online! This is down to personal experience. I hate to say it, but the general attitude in America seems to be dig first, ask questions later.) For Canadians: www.foretouverte.gouv.qc.ca/?context=_lidar&zoom=15¢er=-75.02599,47.87184&invisiblelayers=*&visiblelayers=0c54fe7b21f90158a6e189702d9b4087,ca7980468c8479675d639636f2d1d87f,d89344fe0e985f20da42dcc973038de3,505852bcbe11026347b395833ee5bb6c
I personally catalogue using Global Mapper. It's handy for the LiDAR and whatnot. But not so good with imagery. You can then export a KMZ to GE if you wish. Or, a free alternative is QGis with the QuickMapServices plugin.
KitsuneFox: syzygy - posts I have made here do not receive much attention. I may do a detailed writeup of the now lost Edgemont Park in PA, one of the first electrified trolley parks in the world, but still debating. I'm missing 1 key bit of information.
