Google Earth New Imagery – March

It’s been a little while since the last update, but it appears that Google Earth has pushed out some fresh imagery! Thanks to GEB reader ‘Andreas’ for letting us know about it.


Due to the new imagery, it’s more difficult to spot fresh imagery. Also, in the time since we first spotted this new imagery it’s also arrived in Google Maps, which makes it even more difficult to determine what is new and what is old. Despite that, we’ve found quite a few areas that have been updated and here is the list so far:


  • Italy: Catania — thanks ‘Munden’
  • Malta: Valetta — thanks ‘Munden’
  • New Zealand: Otorohanga — thanks ‘Munden’
  • Poland: Gdansk, Gdynia, Hel, Poznan, Warsaw — thanks ‘Munden’
  • Serbia: Belgrade — thanks ‘Munden’
  • Russia: Arkhangelsk, Monino, Murmansk — thanks ‘Munden’
  • Slovenia: Ljubljana — thanks ‘Munden’
  • Ukraine: Kurpaty — thanks ‘Munden’
  • United States: California (Beales AFB, Linda, Palmdale, Rosamond, Yuba City), Florida (Apalachicola, Daytona Beach, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Kissimmee, Panama City, Pensacola), Georgia (Valdosta), Illinois (Findlay, Galesburg, Neoga, Taylorville), Louisiana (New Orleans), Mississippi (Jacksonville), South Carolina (Charleston, Hartsville, Lancaster), Texas (Beaumont, Corpus Christi, Freeport, Galveston, Texas City), Utah (Halchita, Mexican Hat, Zion National Park) — thanks ‘Andreas’ and ‘Munden’

Street View imagery in Belgium


Along with the ski resorts , Google has now pushed out new Street View imagery across Belgium.



The coverage in Belgium is remarkably comprehensive, with virtually every road now viewable in Street View. To see it for yourself, just search for “Belgium” in Google Earth, then drag the peg man on to the map.

The New Google Earth Imagery – November


Despite the previous imagery update occurring  just a week ago, it appears that Google has pushed out a bit more new imagery. GEB reader ‘Andreas’ noticed some fresh imagery in a few places around the globe, but it’s been difficult to determine if it’s new to Google Earth or not. Most of the imagery is from about six months ago and it’s already in Google Maps, but none of it shows up in recent update files.



Because the new imagery is already in Google Maps, it’s a bit more work to determine which areas are new. To figure out if a particular area is new, you can:
1: Look at the date in Google Earth for the imagery you think might be fresh.
2: Check the updates between then and now in the the update KML to see if it was released in a previous update. If it wasn’t, then it’s new!
