This evening at 5pm PST, we updated the database with this new imagery. You'll need to restart your Google Earth to see it, but no new software is needed (although updating to latest is always a good idea: <a href="http://earth.google.com">Most Recent Google Earth software</a>)

Near Strasbourg, I think that they uploaded new data !!
And perhaps in the Baltic Sea on the East of Copenhagen !!

Thank you for the answer. i have an other question, but i dont know if its here right: where can i find my Places on the Computer and how can i sort it

12-14-2005, 10:55 AM
Joli; you'll have to sort it manually, but you can save it to your PC by opening GE, right clicking the top folder in "My Places" (the folder is, interestingly enough, called "My Places") right-clicking it and selecting save as!

Newbie so apologies if this is in the wrong place...

But how come in one of the recent updates, the imagery of the UK (specifically South Manchester, around the airport) is now older pictures than were there before? Some office blocks that were in there are now back to being muddy building sites, and the airport's 2nd runway looks almost unused now!

Did you get an answer to this? Terminal 5 has been wiped off the face of the earth!!! :confused:

We don't do the imagery Google Earth does. Try asking them.

I would suppose its a debate between
Clearer Data V Older Data
