Supermax

Here is Zacharias Moussaoui's new permanent address. It's Supermax, a.k.a. ADX Florence or the Alcatraz of the Rockies, which actually holds a Guiness World Record for Most Secure Prison. Moussaoui will be surrounded by some of the United States's most notorious criminals including Ted Kaczynski, Terry Nichols, Omar Abdel-Rahmen, Ramzi Yousef, Richard Reid, Matthew Hale, Robert Hanssen, David Lane, and Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso. Supermax was also the end of the line for Timothy McVeigh.

Google Maps did not have a high resolution shot of the area. The "permanent address" link is an image from Windows Live Local.

More info on Supermax can be found here.

Old City, Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand

Google Maps - Chiang Mai, Thailand

The old city, visibly fortified by a wall and moat.

Wat Doi Suthep, Chiang Mai, Thailand

Google Maps - Chiang Mai, Thailand

Wat Prathat Doi Suthep, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

You can see the 309-step naga staircase leading to the temple from the road below. I have climbed that staircase several times - not for pansies.

Baghdad

Some old satellite images from Baghdad...

Here's Saddam's main Presidential Palace.
I believe this was Saddam's Official Residence.
Iraq's Unknown Soldier Monument.
Saddam International Airport.
The traffic circle in the center of this image is Firdos Square. That's where the famous statue of Saddam was pulled down. The big building to the northwest is the Palestine Hotel, where most of the press was (is?) staying. Just south of the Palestine is a building that used to be the Ishtar Sheridan. I'm not sure what it is today. There's a small mosque to the east of the square.

Like the images of Paris, there's no corresponding Google Map. Finding anything is a matter of finding another map and trying to figure out what you're looking at. There's a lot of interesting images here, but it's hard to figure out what some of this stuff is. This was identified on one map simply as "Clock Tower." I'm not sure what this is, but it's very near where the Iraqi Air Force Headquarters is supposed to be.

More images as I figure out what they are...
