Google Earth Imagery – September


A Google Earth imagery update is underway! Thanks to sharp-eyed GEB reader ‘Falko P.’ for letting us know about it.



As is usually the case, you can use Google Maps to determine for sure whether or not a specific area is fresh. This new imagery isn’t in Google Maps yet, so you can compare Earth vs. Maps to see what’s new; the fresh imagery is already in Google Earth, but the old imagery is still in Google Maps. If you compare the two side-by-side and they’re not identical, that means that you’ve found a freshly updated area in Google Earth!

[UPDATED – 7-September, 2:50pm EST]
