In our month end post we mentioned that GEB reader ‘munden’ had found updated imagery. Thanks also to GEB readers ‘Mapmaker’, Frank, Georg, and Sladys for letting us know about additional areas in the comments and via email. Now, Google have updated their ‘latest Google Earth Imagery’ map, showing the date 3rd November 2014. However, the aforementioned areas are not part of this current update, so it seems that once again Google have skipped telling us about an update.
I found out about the current update because I got an email from Google’s Follow Your World app that lets you monitor locations you are interested in and my home town of Livingstone, Zambia, was part of the update.

[Update: Thank you to GEB reader Maarten for letting us know that there was an update that we missed for October 21st, 2014 and for sending us a screen shot as seen below. ]
