I hope you can help me. I installed Google Earth, bought a "new" (to me) video card to make it work, and I still can't go closer than 3200 feet or more and still have the picture in focus. I can get much closer than that with maps.google.com . At least I think so. I checked again and I'm not sure. Has anyone else had this? I have winXP SP3, with 1 gig memory, 800 MHz, and an ATI Radeon 7000 series video card with 64 megs of memory. A) Don't they use the same photographs? I'm not trying to do anything fancy, just zoom closer. C) Someone on the tv said the damage was so great in Haiti, one could see it with Google Earth. Weren't the pictures taken months or years ago? D) I don't think so but maybe she said you could see evidence of the fault line, but like I say, I can't focus well. With maps.google.com everything is clear even at the closest zoom, when the runway at the Port-au-Prince airport is 1 inch wide on a 17" monitor Is there something wrong with my computer set-up? Thanks.
