    UK Aerial Photos

    I'm looking for some software that is able to export or navigate on aerial photographs of the UK.

    I've got GPSS which can plot GPS on custom maps and so far looking at messing around with Paint Shop Pro, MapPoint and MultiMap aerial maps to make each map with the road overlayed on top, but would like some automatic way to do this for a large area or some software that is cheap-ish and has the aerial map data already in it and can export in some way that allows it to be of a specific, definable area using lat/long or grid reference.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Just to give you an idea about the kind of thing I'm after I've done the Paintshop Pro/MapPoint/Multimap picture...

    Would definitely be a cool thing to have... After I played with Keyhole's Earthviewer (http://www.keyhole.com), I would _really_ like aerial image overlays on all my maps! (Not to mention how cool it would be to have everything in 3D!)

    Just checked it out, downloading a trial for it, though doesn't look like it has much detail for the UK sadly
