New Google Earth Imagery – November 8th, 2014

Hot on the heels of the recent imagery update on November 3rd, Google’s ‘Latest Google Earth Imagery Updates’ map now shows another update for November 8th, 2014. Thank you to GEB readers André and Martin for alerting us to it.

It looks like a very significant update notably to areas that previously had poor coverage.
UPDATE: It appears the update is now visible and imagery has been found by our readers, and confirmed by GEB, in many locations. Lots of new imagery to explore!
However, we have been unable to match the areas outlined to any specific imagery in either Google Earth or Google Maps. Is the imagery not yet published, or was it an update to the base imagery used when zoomed out? Do our readers have any ideas?
UPDATE 2: The imagery is now available in ‘historical imagery’ so you can now also see the imagery that was not in the default layer.

  1. Timothy, if you check Mazabuka and Monze, just southwest of Lusaka, there are patches that match (aproximately) the squares on the imagery update page. They are new, as they aren’t in the historical imagery layer. Perhaps they are still being pushed to the servers.

  2. Last August, about the time I became aware of this new image page, there was a strip from Ontario across the eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan, including both Sault Ste. Maries. I look at Great Lakes imagery regularly, and I’ve yet to see anything new around there. I don’t know if something changed in the historical layer, but the most recent imagery in the layer is the same as the default image.

    • THIS IS ALL SUPER OLD PICTURES…google earth has not updated since 2005…i hunt and see no corn where corn is!!! you gotta pay for the good stuff …who has a real updated image of winamac fish and wildlife area??thanks

      • As far as Google is concerned social medializing everythinig is the buzz. Useful products for desktop computers are done because according to the industry smart phones are somehow better and there is no freedom left on the Internet with spying.

        People are now less willing to innovate the web.

  3. Looking at a small number of areas in GE picked at random in Greece zoomed in close along the red line boundaries between old and new, flicking historical imagery on and off makes the ‘new’ side shift position or ‘jump’ slightly, so there seems to be something going on in GE. The new sides show a slight toning down of colours – less red, more blue – otherwise very minor change from the historical imagery, so perhaps it is (largely) a cosmetic update? But, without any metadata from Google as usual, who knows.

  4. Imagery for several days in Google Earth, but still no maps on Google Maps.

  5. New Imagery Update map in the Gallery, dated Nov. 19th.
