Satellite Images seem to work worldwide, now. It's feels great to be able to explore Tokyo, Paris, London and Moscow from above. The resolution in non-city areas is a bit lower, but at least the imagery is there.

just a note:
Google maps (and, of course, keyhole) show also normally "censored" Italian sites (like military playgrounds or industries) not showed in officials map sites (like http://www.atlanteitaliano.it)
It is the same for other countries ?
