It appears that the first imagery update of 2010 is upon us. As pointed out by sharp-eyed reader ‘Kevin’, parts of northern France have been updated.
I’m sure there are many other areas as well, but I’ve yet to track them out. As you discover updated regions, please leave us a comment and let us know.
This new imagery isn’t in Google Maps yet, so remember that you can compare Earth vs. Maps to see what’s new; the fresh imagery is already in Google Earth, but the old imagery is still in Google Maps. If you compare the two side-by-side and they’re not identical, that means that you’ve found a freshly updated area in Google Earth!
[UPDATE — 13-Jan, 5:09pm EST]
The KML file has been updated, so you can see the location of all of the fresh imagery.
