Google's popular map portal has replaced post-Hurricane Katrina satellite imagery with pictures taken before the storm, leaving locals feeling like they're in a time loop and even fueling suspicions of a conspiracy.
in this article's digg comment thread emka says:
This is one of the reasons why you should use NASA World Wind - you can choose between pre and post-Katrina photos:.Check this add-on: www.worldwindcentral.com/wiki/Add-on:2005
It has better resolution than those images from Google (BTW it's aerial imagery, not satellite), better calibration and more areas. There are also post-Rita and Ophelia images.
