Exciting News about Google Maps!

Google Maps (satellite view) uses high resolution images for the more populated areas and low resolution for others (which it has slowly been updating to high resolution images). Today I discovered that the area around our school can now be viewed as a high resolution image on Google Maps. So here is my challenge. Go to Google Maps and enable the Distance Calculator (press the test tube button on the top right hand corner of the screen and you will see the option). Measure (in meters) the length and width of our school (there is a measuring button beside the scale on the map). Any students up for the challenge?
