MOTW #74

The California Coastal Project was a project where a pilot and photographer flew over the entire coastline of California taking aerial pictures every few hundred feet (except for Vandenberg Air Force Base which was off limits). They took GPS readings for each picture so you can click anywhere on the map and get the photograph for that location. Barbara Streisand unsuccessfully sued them for violating her privacy by photographing her Malibu estate. You can access details of the suit at this site if you really care.
