Sharp-eyed reader ‘RiderLT’ has discovered some fresh imagery in Google Earth, which we’ve been able to confirm. If you look in central Kazakhstan (earth – maps) you’ll see that there is clearly new imagery in the area. Remember, you can compare the imagery in Google Earth to the imagery in Google Maps to determine if an area has been updated. As with previous updates, the new imagery is visible in Google Earth but is not yet visible in Google Maps.
What else can you find that’s been updated?
[UPDATE -- 03-Nov, 6:01pm EST]
Google has released the official list of updates. You can view it using the Google Earth Plug-in on their site, or download the KML to see all of the updates inside of Google Earth.
- Brazil — Especially south and southeast parts of the country (thanks ‘Tiago’)
- Kazakhstan — Most of the country (thanks ‘RiderLT’)
