Sounds like a great idea. Let me know when it's done. ;)

Seriously, though, have you seen Terraserver? So far, it covers the entire U.S., including Alaska. You can see, in great detail, aerial photos of any place in the United States, digitally stitched together to form one continous image. Try it. Start at any point and scroll in any direction. You'll get tired of clicking and dragging long before you've covered even 100 miles, let alone the whole country. I have used this site to view some of the houses my ancestors lived in over two hundred years ago! You can search for a specific address and then see the house and its surounding area. The only drawback is that the photos used are from several different photo surveys shot during the 1970s through mid-1990s, so recent structures are absent. On the other hand, if you want to see what an area looked like prior to the construction of a building, it's a great tool.
