    While investigating the new imagery, I turned on the spot image layer – Google seems to be slowly replacing its base imagery with spot images.
    I noticed something odd. Spot have coverage of almost all land except:
    * The north east of Russia. I guess because of snow cover.
    * Parts of equatorial Africa: Cameroon, Gabon, Congo and DRC. – I guess because of heavy cloud cover.
    *This is the odd one: Chad. Its almost as if Chad is being censored.
