E-M:/ Microsoft "Terra Server" in Michigan

Microsoft's Terra Server is showing some significant 
coverage of Michigan with access to high altitude photos
with resolution down to 1 meter.

Here is a URL of the National Gypsum cement kiln dust 
piles on the north shore of Thunder Bay near Alpena.

Click on the upper left to see the hazardous waste burning
cement kilns at Lafarge.

Because of John Engler's amendments to Michigan's
environmental remediation law, the State of Michigan
cannot hold Lafarge Corporation, the current owner, 
liable for the fact that these arsenic-containing dust piles
are washing into Lake Huron.

I also tried to find the 9 square mile White Pine tailings
basin, but only a small portion is covered.

Use "find a location" to see other places in Michigan with 
high altitude photos.
