New Google Earth Imagery – May 1, 2014

It appears that Google has just pushed out a fresh batch of imagery. Thanks to sharp-eyed GEB readers ‘Horvath’ and ‘Munden’ for being the first to let us know about it.

Daytona Beach

The imagery has already rolled out to Google Maps, making it difficult to tell what is new and what isn’t. As far as we can tell, the following areas are fresh:

  • Hungary: Budapest
  • India: Alang
  • Lithuania: Klaipeda
  • North Korea: Pungchon, Sinpo
  • Poland: Moszna
  • Russia: guba Zapadnaya Litsa

  • Ukraine: DonetskKharkiv, Kyiv, Luhansk, Svaljava
  • United Kingdom: London
  • United States: Arizona (Prescott), California (San Francisco, Santa Cruz), Florida (Daytona Beach, Jacksonville, Palm Coast, St. Augustine), New Mexico (San Antonio, Stallion AAF, White Sands)

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

  1. Google also pushed out imagery of the devastating 3/22 Oso landslide in Washington State (Snohomish County). The imagery can be found in both Google Maps and Google Earth. Lat/long: 48.283809°, -121.847335°

  2. Chris Bowman says:

    Virginia Beach was recently updated with imagery from 2/24/2014.

  3. KML – this is the second reported update since the 27 February KML, so Google seem again to be giving the update KMLs low priority.

    LONDON – in central London there is now good quality default imagery from 19 July 2013, but for some reason the historic layer now contains imagery from February 2012 when the weather was dreadful and the city is virtually obscured by cloud. Why, and what is going on?

  4. Maarten says:

    Ohrid, Macedonia, has imagery dated Oct,18, 2013. I don’t know whether is was in this update or in the previous one, for there still is no KMZ of the last update to check this out…

  5. SpiderX22 says:

    Goseong, South Korea
    Geoje, South Korea
    Hong Kong
    Liuhengzhen, Putuo, Zhoushan, Zhejiang (China)
    Tokyo Bay

  6. Munden says:

    USA, California: Just realized San Diego was updated. I ignored it because it had a very recent very high resolution update.

  7. Xuan Loc, Vietnam and surrounding areas (including the former 11th Armored Cavalry base camp at Long Giao).

  8. Daniel says:
  9. Maputo, Mozambique.
    Brac Island, Croatia.

    Has anyone notice since the mid 2000s Google has become more and more stupid and more and more corporate like where they treat us as peasants.

    When Google first started they were more *family friendly* and put the customers first and now they act like the Globalists companies that want to spy on you 24/7 and think they can do what they want to their customers/users.

    Sadly the majority of users are too dumb to know to stand up for their rights and boycott what is morally wrong.

  14. TheBigOne says:

    And that’s not just Google but any company that commits unethical practices.

    Get rid of morality and you have people acting like the monkeys they were taught they came from!

  15. Herostratus says:

    There is new imagery for Kent, UK available in the historical imagery from 1940,1960 and 1990. The date for 1940 is not correct as Canterbury is shown as destroyed even though this did not happen until June 1942. Looking at the various military structures I’d guess that the imagery is post war. It is earlier than the London “January 1945” imagery which looks to be late 40’s.

  16. Avie More says:

    Old imagery of Russell Square, London had an aircraft above it’s top right-hand corner, but new imagery is without it. Nice to see more recent views of London though!
