New Google Earth Imagery – April 2015

Google has updated its monthly Imagery Updates map to show April 2015. You can view it in Google Earth using this KML file. As usual, there is no way to keep a permanent record other than a screen shot and the above links will likely be updated to show later months in the future.

About Timothy Whitehead

Timothy has been using Google Earth since 2004 when it was still called Keyhole before it was renamed Google Earth in 2005 and has been a huge fan ever since. He is a programmer working for Red Wing Aerobatx and lives in Cape Town, South Africa.


  1. John Doggett says:

    Few new areas for France, except… the area where an aircraft crashed in the Alps two months ago (44°16’47 N, 6°26’19 E)

    • Timothy Whitehead says:

      That area did get updates with images taken just days after the crash. Be sure to check ‘historical imagery’. However, there is not a lot to see as the aircraft disintegrated on impact.

  2. Since then there has already been new imagery appearing in GE. Western pasrt of Sarajevo and part of central BiH have new imagery (dated march 18 2015) that are not in this update.

  3. Hi Tim, it’s probably worth mentioning with each of these posts that the default imagery in Google Earth is not always the most recent imagery.

    People looking for more up-to-date imagery should check ‘View > Historical Imagery’. Which defaults to showing the most recent imagery, unless you drag the slider to a particular date.

    For example in my part of Sydney the default imagery is June 2009 but there is imagery from May 2015.

  4. We’re just about halfway through May and we’re already receiving reports of new imagery. A large portion of southeastern Michigan has received new imagery dated April 11, 2015. It’s not in this update.

  5. New 3D imagery east of France (Towns of Belfort and Montbéliard).
    I draw a kml file to show the area.

    Hi Tim, I don’t know if you will receive this note from me down here in Australia, but if you do, can you tell me why, on Google Earth/maps/Earth, the resulting image appears to be divided diagonally from top left down to bottom right, and moving my pointer simply moves one half relative to the other? Very annoying. Thank you. Peter.
