Caroline: I just got an email from Sandra with her new address. I wish I knew what kind of neighborhood our daughter is living in.
Bryce: Let’s find out. I’ll type in her address on this map program.
Caroline: That will just tell us where she’s living within the city, not what kind of neighborhood it is.
Bryce: Just wait. I can show you the street view of her apartment and you can see what her building looks like.
Caroline: Wow, that’s amazing, but doesn’t the building look a little run- down?
Bryce: That’s what you get with high-resolution images. You see every detail. You can navigate around and see a panoramic view of her street.
Caroline: Oh, that doesn’t look very clean or safe.
Bryce: Let me show you an aerial view. The satellite view will give you a better idea of the entire area.
Caroline: Is that an airport nearby and are those factories? What will this other view show us?
Bryce: That provides real-time traffic information and allows for route planning. It looks like she lives on a highly congested street. Hey, where are you going?
Caroline: I’m going to visit our daughter. I want to see for myself what kind of hovel she’s living in!
