Google Earth (Used to be called Keyhole) – Explore, Search and Discover
A 3D interface to the planet
Want to know more about a specific location? Dive right in -- Google Earth combines satellite imagery, maps and the power of Google Search to put the world's geographic information at your fingertips.

It also lets you overlay roads, hotels, banks, churches, topography, zip codes, crime stats... and power plants...

Here is the link to the Google Earth Viewer (free).

Now for the really cool part, after you have installed the software, and have it running; click on the attachment below, and it will add all of the nuclear facilities to your google earth placemarks. (Choose open)

After you have opened the file, it will automatically add the folder of placemarks to your earth viewer, located in your "temporary placemerks" folder.  You need to move it to your "my placemarks" folder, by draging and droping it.

Attached to this message are Several more files, one is picture ocerlays of Europe reactors.

The others are place marks of France, Scotland and Spanish sites simular to the US llist posts in the first message.

Also, you can do a rearch of the Earth Viewer BBS for more locations:

This program is so cool, just discovered it last month.  Ihave just arrived in Jefferson City for work at Callaway, but before I got here I was able to look at my apartment, actually travel the route to the plant, and when I typed in Reform, Mo it zoomed in on the plant itself. Awesome!!

If you click on that first attachment, it will have Calaway on the map already.  (And all the other plants.)

I've used this for a while, since it was Keyhole, and it cost money.
