A Maxim ad outside of vegas that you can see from the sky. A ginormous half-nekkid pic of Eva. My gift to you.

Maxim Cover of Eva Longoria Supersized Thu Apr 6, 1:42 PM ET

LAS VEGAS - For air travelers flying over southern Nevada this week, the view offers more than miles of dusty desert.

A giant, bikini-clad Hollywood star perched on the desert sands isn't a mirage, but a recreation of a Maxim magazine cover.

The cover is made of a vinyl-mesh screen and reads, "THE ONLY MAGAZINE BIG ENOUGH TO BE SEEN FROM SPACE AND ONLY IN VEGAS!" A barely dressed Eva Longoria, star of ABC's "Desperate Housewives," graces the 75-by-110-foot display just outside Primm, near the California state line.

The cover is part of several days of events celebrating the magazine's 100-issue milestone, including poker and golf tournaments at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel-casino, a Maxim public relations representative said this week.

Erika Yowell, a spokeswoman for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, told the Las Vegas Sun that her agency is involved with the promotion because the magazine's readers are a good target audience for the city.

Maxim is one of the new "lad's magazines" that feature scantily clad, but not nude, young female celebrities.

Common questions about Google Earth

1. When were these pictures taken? How often are they updated?

Our images are photographs taken by satellites and aircraft sometime in the last three years. The images in Google Earth are updated on a rolling basis. Click here for more details.

2. Are Google Earth images captured in real time?

No, they aren't. Our images are photographs taken by satellites and aircraft sometime in the last three years.

Google could have just snapped that to get in on free advertising. It takes a lot of time to upload any of those images, I don't think they would even bother while the rest of the state is all jacked and pixelated.

This is a screenshot from one of the programs I use, it's an old POS but still 10x better than google earth.

Ya i saw the logos and figured I woudl take a look.

I wish you could zoom in with better quality on GE. I could really use a program with high resolution on zoom for work.

Try these instead. Both are better as far as imagery go. It depends on the area though, most populated places are high resolution.

Ha, no kidding. I majored in Geography & Environmental Planning with the hopes of going into GIS. I got antsy and fell back on my computer background when I didn't land something within a couple months of graduation. I kind of regret not sticking it out. One of my best friends, and in the same program as me in school, made it work for him though and is doing pretty good with it. He just recently moved back to the west coast but I'll see if he has any contacts in Chicago at the firms he worked at, at least find out if they're hiring interns.

good luck to you man!

Thanks, hopefully I'll do pretty well with it. If I can't get into the private sector I can always work for the government...if that doesn't happen I can still teach and get all summer off.

There is a lot of work in that in the military. I know some people, if you are willing to work out of state for the summer.
