It appears that Google has just pushed out a fresh batch of imagery! Thanks to sharp-eyed GEB reader ‘Munden’ for being the first to let us know about it.
Unlike some of the other recent updates, this imagery isn’t yet in Google Maps. As a result, you can compare Google Earth to Google Maps to determine what is 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:
- France: Tolouse
- Italy: Palermo, Zingarello
- Japan: Maebashi
- United Kingdom: Eastbourne, West Wittering
- United States: California (Fairfield, Half Moon Bay, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Saulsalito, Sonoma, Suisan Bay, Watsonville, Woodland), Minnesota (Bemidji, Park Rapids), North Dakota (Galesburg, Valley City)
If you find any other updated areas, please leave a comment and let us know!
