Aerial views reënabled!

A few months ago, Google put the non-profit Gmap4 service out of business. GridScout™ relied on Gmap4 for its aerial views, so that was a sad day. But yesterday I reënabled the aerial-view feature using Google Maps directly. It lacks the MGRS-grid overlay that we used to enjoy with Gmap4, but it’s still useful for confirming the relevance of a search result and checking its surroundings.

Update: We now have an MGRS grid again.
