In Sydney on the 26th January? Get on Google Maps!

Google PlaneIf you are in Sydney, Australia, on the 26th January 2007 get yourself down to the Harbour. Google, as part of the Australia Day celebrations, are planning to take areal photographs of the city (from their Google branded plane) for Google Maps.

They have permission to fly low and take high resolution photographs so they will be able to pick out individual people – although you might want to wear a big hat.

Google have set up a Google Maps powered plane-tracker website to keep you informed of where to expect the the plane throughout the day.
