Google releases a large update of fresh Street View imagery

It appears that Google has just pushed out a major update to Street View, covering areas in many states around the US and many countries around the world.  Thanks to GEB reader ‘Munden’ for being the first to notice it, and for compiling the list below.


While Google hasn’t released an official list of updated areas, there appear to be updates in Brazil, Canada, Chile, China (Hong Kong), Denmark, France, Mexico, Romania, Singapore, UK and the US.  Some specific areas include:

United Kingdom


Washington State

New York City



Rhode Island


Aquarium of the Pacific – California
McDowell Mountain Regional Park – Arizona, and it includes new backpack imagery.
Aquarium of the Americas – New Orleans, Louisiana
All of this imagery is available in Google Maps using the links above, but can also be found directly in Google Earth.  Here’s a short video that shows how that works if you’ve never used Street View in Google Earth before:

If you find any other updated areas, please leave a comment and let us know.

  4. “Some landmarks in Chile, including sky resorts and pedestrian streets in some cities”

  5. Carolinas and Georgia. Savannah parks/squares and Bonaventure Cemetery. Lots of charleston, including Angel Oak. Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. USC campus.

  6. So far I see no updates in Denmark

  7. Skagen Museum, National Museum of Denmark, Horspung Collection Museum, Thorvaldsen Museum and other museums in Denmark and around the world were updated a month ago, May 20.

  8. According to wikipedia only Chile with some volcanos have been updated this time.

  9. Now I have found the update in Denmark: The trike has been on board a Copenhagen Harbor and Canal tour boat to show our Capital from harbor view.

  10. Images of the trike on a Canal boat in Copenhagen in a Danish computer magazine:

    Google also updated street view in Goshen, Tipton, Pixley, & Earlimart, California from March/April 2013

  12. menonachs says:

    Streetview in Disneyland has been added, but is was deleted & no longer available

  13. Can any GEB reader help by explaining the process of Street View update? Are there mainly large batches of updates as with GE imagery, or is it more constant. Google LatLong certainly features new coverage when on a country wide basis, and new imagery of special locations as it has done this time, but does more go on in the background?

    There is now some newer imagery in the UK, for example from 2012 in West Yorkshire, updating the very comprehensive UK coverage of 2009, but the extent of such change is hard to determine and sometimes to understand – physical change, new points of interest, defective imagery, and so on?

  14. Since 2009, Connecticut has not had a major street view update… at least for now.

      A lot of the images are really blurry and make CT look like barf. When I see how old many of the NE street view images are I wind up almost crying.

      Google seems to have gotten lazy but then again they are becoming known for their spying techniques so they are likely spying on us instead of doing what they used to do thanks to big brother.

    Still no StreetView for Indonesia, and they’re still recording as of 17 June. Interestingly, they reached my regency where I live.

  16. archangelmichael2 says:

    I wonder what happened to interior street view they so advertise.

    Are they trying to hide it?

  17. archangelmichael2 says:

    Also does anybody remember the newspaper archive service Google tried to do but flaked out?
