[UPDATE 15-April: Google has posted the full details (at the bottom half of the post) for the imagery and terrain update.]
Google has pushed out a new imagery update in Google Earth just in time for Easter! No details have been released, but after a few E-mails from GEB readers (thanks Andreas, Jan, and Doug!) I’ve confirmed several updates. Thankfully, Google did NOT update both GE and Google Maps at the same time like they did last time. This means we can compare GE to Google Maps to confirm whether the imagery is new.
Below is a list of what has been found. If you find other areas which are new (just check with Google Maps to verify whether imagery is new), then report it here in the comments. Here’s the list so far (UPDATED 1730):
United States – New broad coverage of high resolution for states which still had low resolution imagery: Arizona, Mississippi, Kentucky, Virginia, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Illinois, Tennessee, Maine, New York, and western Pennsylvania. (Thanks to Andreas for these) Also, New York City, NY.
India – India has been re-colorized (like Australia had done in December). The imagery looks a lot less like patchwork when viewed from above.
France – New area in central France near Chateauroux.
Spain – San Sebastian and other areas along the north coast. Thanks Jan W.
Sweden – About 1/3rd of the country now has high res and blended with new colors. Thanks Brian, Dunkleosteus.
Morocco – Looks like lots of Morocco has medium res Spot Image imagery.
Brazil – São Paulo. Thanks joaorcunha, Bill S.
Scotland – A few strips of new high res. Thanks Chris.
Antarctica – Many places have new high res. Thanks Xavier.
South Korea – Entire country high res. Thanks Thilo.
Austria – Several parts in central and eastern part of the country have new high res. Thanks Thilo.
