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!
Some of the updated areas include:
- Guam: Hagatna
- India: New Delhi
- Iran: Bushehr, Tehran
- Italy: Mestre, Venice
- Northern Mariana Islands: Saipan
- Pakistan: Islamabad
- Turkey: Uskudar
- United States: Florida (full length of the Florida Keys), Louisiana (Baton Rouge), New Mexico (Albuquerque), Texas (Odessa)
If you find any other updated areas, please leave a comment and let us know!
