This is the page where I have the history of Boulder County Google Earthafied, meaning it is available for download on a free program called Google Earth, where you can see satellite photos of the world.

Clicking on the Google Earth icons will download KMZ files onto your computer that you can open on Google Earth. The blue Google Earth icon downloads the rainbow color coded versions of the maps, designed to accentuate the lots and buildings, and the white icons are for the realistic green and brown colored versions so it looks like a cartoon world that you can explore.

The KMZ files can be downloaded in folders large and small for your convenience, corresponding to where they are.
