Barely a week after the last imagery update, Google has released some fresh imagery to Google Earth, including imagery up to April 5th, 2016.
Blue: existing March imagery. Red: fresh March imagery.
Blue: existing February imagery. Red: fresh February imagery.
To see the maps of imagery by month in Google Earth download this KML file. As usual, the outlines are larger than the actual imagery. We have also included a map for January imagery that we did last week before this update.
We have not yet found any imagery connected to specific events, so instead we will have a look at a couple of interesting locations we came across as we were looking through the imagery.
Interesting patterns in China. We believe they are rice fields designed so that the water flows from one field to the next down a slope.
Lake Poskin, Wisconsin. Aerial imagery is usually gathered in summer, so we don’t often see frozen lakes at this resolution.
