Google has updated its Imagery Update map to show March 2015. Thank you to GEB reader Sladys for letting us know. As before, you can view it in Google Earth using this KML file
It is the same map that was used for the February updates so the February map is no longer available. Due to the way Maps Engine uses a proprietary network link, it is not possible to save the data shown on the maps as a KML. The only way we know of to keep a record is via a screen shot. We hope Google will update its Historical Imagery Updates map, which as of this writing still only shows up to October 2014.
Monthly Google Earth Imagery Updates – March 2015
Note that some of the imagery has not yet been put into ‘historical imagery’ and if it isn’t being added to the default layer, it may not be visible at all.
So, have a look around the new imagery and let us know if you find anything interesting. We notice there is new imagery in Nicaragua around the site where construction of the Nicaragua Canal will begin. If any of our readers can spot early signs of construction please let us know. It is in the very early stages of construction so we would expect to see access roads being built, not the actual canal.
Our favourite find so far is Concordia Research Station in Antarctica:
Concordia Research Station, Antarctica.

World-View 3 in 30cm imagery – http://goo.gl/maps/nzjgE ?
Very well and very interesting. Good job!
Hm, when viewing in Google Earth some sites marked in this update, the date of the imagery is quite old. For example, Dobrich, Bulgaria – imagery in this update is actually dated 2013!

Marseille and Aix-en-Provence got updated. It is’nt visible in historical imagery yet.
Santiago de Chile is on 3D now, and some cities’ imagery in northern Chile has been updated…
Hi, I’m from Polish, my city there are no current satellite imagery, comes to town Piaseczno near Warsaw.
Can we calculate when google earth maps will be updated in a region of the world?
I am from a small town of Greece – Amfissa. The town is not extremely close to any large city so I wonder how often updated Satelite imagery will be available.
