Autodesk Premises Over the Years

As part of the archives I'm assembling for Autodesk's 25th anniversary year, I've long wished I had photos of Autodesk's various premises over the decades. The next best thing is aerial views from Google Maps, so I spent some time tracking them down. Here is overhead imagery of Autodesk's various headquarters in California and the European Software Centre in Switzerland, embedded into a document using the Google Maps API (the first such application I've built, and about as simple as they get). The imagery for Switzerland is quite old—definitely prior to 2000.

If you have any ground-level pictures of these locations which you'd like to share, please send them my way and I'll include them in this document. Thanks in advance!
