How to View Someone's House Via Satellite

By Eric Cedric

Internet technology opens up new methods of staying in touch, sharing information, locating addresses and now, it allows you to view specific addresses from satellite cameras. Major Internet entities like Google or TerraServer allow you to enter an address and get a satellite view of earth, sometimes even down to a specific home or building. In many cases, this technology is free, requiring only a fast Internet connection. Each server and satellite search engine has its own specific set of rules and guidelines, but the access process follows a basic formula.

Step 1

Direct an Internet browser to the satellite viewing program of your choice. Examples include Google Earth, TerraServer and Flash Earth. Follow the download links for your computer's operating system.

Step 2

Download and install the program or plug-in if required. Restart your computer after installation.

Step 3

Direct the web browser back to the website's satellite imagery page. Follow the links to the address fields for your viewing choice.
