Thanks to sharp-eyed GEB reader ‘Andy’, we see that Google has just pushed some fresh imagery into Google Earth. It’s been a longer delay than we normally see between updates, but it looks like it might be a fairly substantial one!
As is usually the case, 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!
