Google has updated the ‘Latest Google Earth Imagery’ map, showing an update on December 17th. Thank you to GEB reader ‘AC’ for letting us know.
Latest Google Earth Imagery map – December 17th, 2014. Larger Version.
As is traditional at this time of year, let us look back at previous updates and see how Google is doing. Google provides a handy map of imagery updates from 2009 to 2014, although it does not currently include November and December this year. But even without including the large update on November 8th, it is clear that 2014 has been the best year yet for imagery updates.

It seems as if Belgium is almost the only country that did not get any update this year…
This may be a blessing in disguise when recent update imagery can be of such variable quality – see my comment on the 18 December GEB post.
I see new imagery after 17 December, already in Map Maker, but have’nt release in Updates Imagery…
Around December 23. there was a new update. In that there was an update for New York City and Denmark: the island Als from Sonderborg along with the western part of thisland Fyn and up to Fredericia.
I mentioned it i GEB fb site but no reaction from you and suddenly my entries were gone.
I did not pay attention to Europe and the US, but in Ukraine saw updating some areas. Better to blog readers have written about the update in their country after 17 December 2014

Wondering why Google Earth and Maps have removed more recent imagery and replaced it with 2009 data? We are located in Benton, TN. Earlier this year it had 2013 data, now it has reverted back to 2009. Has this happened to anyone else? Any news much appreciated
A new update has been pushed, as post December 17th dated imagery can be found:
Namelala, Mozambique (near Nacala) – 2014-12-19
Nanjing, China – 2014-12-29
The gallery hasn’t been updated yet.
