  1. Where are the high res sat photos for Gothenburg? Disappointing that neither Microsoft nor Google have addressed this, given that Gothenburg is the second largest city in the country!

  2. I agree with Arun above… there are much better and recent satpictures available, but neither G-Maps or G-Earth displays them.
    It’s especially interesting since Göteborg seems to get more and more 3D buildings on G-Earth now and the City Council has actually come some way on building the entire city in 3D already.

  3. how do I get city and roads on my map ??
