Once again blue spots of images from Panoramio returned to Google Maps (which you can see by picking Street View man). They often disappear from time to time, maybe because of some changes or maintenance...

EDIT: damn, I got beaten

Due to Photobucket f*cking up, most images won't be visibile in my old posts. If you need anything specific, please write me.

Montenegro is photographed in high resolution, which may not be satellite but airplane shot. Interesting thing is that high resolution follows the border of Montenegro.

It is not that difficult to apply a mask on image montage. Btw. you are right about the "satellite images". It is seemingly the result of aerial remote sensing. Notice there are no clouds at all.

Now it is.

This one isn't a transcontinental city but a transcontinental municipality (local administrative subdivision): the Italian municipality of "Lampedusa e Linosa" is made up by those two islands, the first African and the second European.

Also many Greek islands (yellow on the map) belong to Asia

Good topic.

Ever heard about doubly landlocked countries? There are only two of them in the world
