Google has for a long time only released a written summary of a portion of the updates for their imagery updates. Here is their text details for this update. But, for the first time, after who knows how many people have asked for it, Google has released a KML file that outlines (in red) the areas of new imagery for the July release! Now you can tell just how much of the globe was covered by this update. After four years of following Google Earth imagery updates closely, I can tell you this kind of coverage to the imagery updates is probably typical in their monthly updates.
Hopefully now everyone can better appreciate the gift of data Google is presenting to us all with these amazing imagery updates. You also can get a better sense of just how big the planet is by just trying to look at a portion of just the updated areas. I hope Google will continue to release their updates with a KML file like this!
By the way, GEB readers discovered many of the regions in this update over the weekend. Read the details we discovered, and some of the issues found with some of the changes.
