Visit Bing Maps by following the second reference below. Type an address, location, or business into the text bar on the left side of the page and hit "Enter" on your keyboard. On the top left of the map, click "Aerial" to view an aerial shot of the map. Zoom with the slider on the left side of the map.
Use Yahoo! Maps to view aerial images. Visit the website in the third reference and enter the location in the text bar on the left side of the page. Hit the "Enter" key on your computer.
