     This is my first real attempt at programming in VB.NET, it took me awhile because I didn't like what they did to the language (old dogs/new tricks) anyways this app will grab satelitte images from using terraservers web service. the web reference is . Its very basic, has no error handling, and is based on the Terraserver's 'Example Map' in C#. Type in the Latitude/Longitude, select picture scale, and picture type (aerial, topo, shaded, or hi-res) and click 'go', takes a few minutes to download the image so be patient. Code isn't commented (sorry). I'll eventually turn this into a control and repost.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
