Microsoft’s Terraserver

Sorta SOAPish.. Microsoft’s Terraserver “.. contains 3.3 tera-bytes of high resolution USGS aerial imagery and USGS topographic maps.” It sounds so high tech… but what’s really scary is how accurate it is. I fed it my home address and it came up with this which REALLY is a picture of where I live. And this is where I grew up. Wowsers!. And to make it on topic, they have a webservice implementation. (from xmethods)

  1. Is it possible to make an address search using SOAP (and I don’t mean that HTML page that they offer)??? It does not look like you can access the imagery through an address request (street & zip) with SOAP method but I hope I’m wrong. Terreaserver only seems to support “landmarks” and they really don’t have enough to be useful. Have you seen any methods for making a “real” address request with SOAP?
