Thanks to some sharp-eyed GEB readers (‘Bob’ being the first), we see that Google pushed out some fresh imagery a few days ago.
You can grab the Imagery Updates KML file to see the exact locations of the new imagery, but it includes areas of the upper-midwest and western United States, some in Mexico, quite a bit in Pakistan, sections of China and small areas in dozens of other countries.
In addition, Google has added some new “historical imagery” from the New Jersey shore and New York City taken just after Hurricane Sandy.
If you need help accessing the historical imagery, here is how that feature works.
Thanks to Bob and everyone else that let us know about this update!
