The resolution of the satellite imagery on full zoom is incredibe - a big improvement on Google & Bing Maps.

Strangely the closest zoom level imagery seems to be slightly older than the zoomed out satellite imagery. If look at the 2002 Olympics site zoomed full in you can see the old buildings that have now been demolished. Zoom out and you can see the very beginnings of the Olympic stadium build.
