Thanks to sharp-eyed GEB reader ‘Auquicu’, we’ve learned that Google has just updated imagery in a handful of locations around the world.
As is often 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!
Some of the updated areas include:
- Peru: Lima
- United States: Georgia (Albany)
If you find any other updated areas, please leave a comment and let us know!
