Google has been sending out small, frequent updates for the past few months, which are more difficult for us to notice. However, GEB reader ‘Bernd’ contacted us to let us know about a few areas with fresh updates.
As is almost always 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!
