Very cool, and surprisingly accurate!

Relying on tiles is not the best choice, especially if you're interested in linear features. And from what I saw playing with the NYC tileset, the similarities right now are such that if you click on a tile with trees un the upper left corner, you're going to find all the tiles with trees in the upper left corner.

OK, it's an alpha, so hopefully a bounding box feature will be in the works at some point.

I think this service is phenomenal and I'm surprised not to see more discussion here! It's a beautiful application of image recognition and to tagged satellite images. Lots of fun and genuinely useful for a variety of reasons.
