Hot on the heels of last night’s StreetView update, we find ourselves with a bunch of fresh imagery to enjoy, too! Ottawa, Canada and parts of Ireland have been updated, among others. See the bottom of this post for the full (and oft-updated) list.
[UPDATE 10-FEB -- The "updated areas" KML file is now available. Download it here.]
As always, you can use Google Maps to determine for sure whether or not a specific area is fresh. This new imagery isn’t in Google Maps yet, so 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!
[UPDATED -- 9-Feb, 6:08pm EST]
