[UPDATED 0645 ET 14-Oct-2008: Make sure you check “View in Google Maps” to confirm the imagery is new before leaving a comment.]
Just started getting reports of places with new or updated high resolution imagery. Keep sending in reports if you find something new. You can tell if an image is new by clicking the “View in Google Maps” link in GE to compare. Google Maps doesn’t yet have the new imagery so if the imagery isn’t the same – its new. Here’s the list of places found so far:
India – New medium resolution Spot Image background imagery for a big portion of India. Thanks to GEB reader Alok Patel for being the first to report new imagery.
US – Looks like a big portion of North Carolina has new unattributed aerial imagery – or at least it is color processed differently.
