The Costa Concordia, now visible in Genoa, Italy

Although Google have not updated their ‘Latest Google Earth Imagery Updates’ map since the December 17th update, a number of readers have let us know that there have been quite a few areas updated since then.

GEB reader Sladys has also pointed us to the fact that Genoa, Italy has been updated and the Costa Concordia can be seen in the new imagery. Soon after the Costa Concordia disaster happened we showed you satellite imagery of the wrecked cruise ship and not long after we had a look at a stunning 3D Google Earth tour of the disaster created by Peter Olsen.

It took more than two years for the ship to be salvaged and it was towed to Genoa in July 2014. The current image in Google Earth is from September 2nd, 2014. For pictures of the vessel arriving in Genoa see this article. To see the location in Google Earth, download this KML file.

Comments

  1. It wasn’t York I mentioned. It was New York City.

  2. Vienna is also updated.

  3. Paris, France also updated.

  4. Rome, Italy

  5. Paul Lackey says

    There appears to be a large area of new imagery in the Sepik region of Papua New Guinea.

  6. It’s amazing how the last several years Google hasbeen really quiet about their updates like they don’t really give a rip anymore. I suspect they are quietly shifting gears to something different as they focus more on online marketing then providing useful products for free.

  7. Any new imagery found lately?

  8. The ship has been moved… the existing coordinates reveal an empty mooring location as of March 1, 2015

      It is hidden under the 3D. Turn off 3D buildings, or switch to ‘historical imagery’. If you use the KML from the post it should automatically switch to ‘historical imagery’.
