Google Earth can give users a detailed panoramic view of a place. The city we're looking for is really into this concept. It's using Google Earth to put its every geographic detail online.

We'll tell you what that means in a moment. First, you've got to name the second-largest city on Canada's Vancouver Island. It's just north of Victoria, and across the water from the city of Vancouver.
