It's just one step closer to the 100% High Resolution Globe.

I'm not entirely sure, but looking at India, it seems there is even more hi res now. If I'm not mistaken, it too should be on the list of updated countries.

(Here...I'll compromise....for every file I upload today, I'll approve/deny double that number).

It looks like The Netherlands now has 100% high resolution. One benefit of living in a small country, I guess...

That just might be a first actually (not counting really small countries like Monaco, the Vatican and Saint Kitts and Nevis...) I've done a quick scan, and at least close by smaller countries like Belgium and Denmark are not there yet.

What's up with the outskirts of Austin, Texas. It's all really blurry and seems a waste to look at. And if it's a new form of censoring, which it most likely isn't (its just residential areas and woods), it's a big waste...

09-09-2006, 07:10 PM
i hear what you're saying (if your referring to the grey outskirts) but its still a higher-res than the green bits surrounding it.
so it probably is better now.

A huge update for Google Earth was pushed out last night, which gives high-res images to a variety of new places.

In the United States: California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maine, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina and Texas all have seen some updates.

Has anyone noticed this that seems to have coincided with the update, and might be due to the much larger amount of data that has to be downloaded to update the image on your screen when you navigate, but navigating whether with the compass or dragging has become very sluggish, at least in some areas.

I've been spending some time looking around the area of the Edwards AFB in California and navigation is really sluggish and jerky.

My first paranoic thought was that "they" were vetting every pixel to make sure I didn't see anything I should not <G>But when I check Performance in the Task Manager my 1GB of RAM is maxed out and it must be using the hard drive as well. (I'll have to up the RAM before going to VISTA <G>)

Have a look at these two locations Edwards AFB and Inthemiddleof nowhere-ville.kmz (the latter does have a name, I found out afterwards from the friend whose visit to Edwards AFB led me to GE it, "Silver Saddle. It's a resort community in the middle of the desert."

If you look NW of the long main runway at Edwards AFB it's interesting to see the runways on the dried lake bed.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oh that's interesting -- navigation is back to normal. Perhaps it was during the updating?

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's another interesting one: China Lake Nwc. Do a Google on it or have a look at http://www.nawcwpns.navy.mil/clmf/hist.html and then if you turn on the earthquake markers in Layers / Geographic features perhaps guess why the earthquakes show up in such a geometric array <S>

They've reverted to older imagery of Chicago, which is actually kinda sorta okay by me. The last update was lousy...most of the loop was hidden by the shadows of the buildings, all you could see clearly were rooftops. It was at least an update though...Millennium Park was done, and now it's back to being built.

Looks like the suburbs aren't any newer, but at least they're not any older.

Cool new layers are available now for GE !!!



Google has released new layers today. Probably the biggest addition is the Best of 3DWarehouse Buildings layer (read more below):

New/updated layers:

* Yelp Reviews - A new Featured Content layer of reviews from the web site Yelp.com which hosts reviews by people who have been there.
* 3D Buildings - Google has decided to make the large repository of quality 3D buildings from the 3D Warehouse easier to view. If you have the latest GE 4 beta, you can now turn on a "Best of 3D Warehouse" layer under "3D Buildings" and it will automatically load high quality buildings for the area you are viewing (using a network link). You can also still download the <a href="http://earth.google.com/intl/en/3d.html" title="GE File">3D Warehouse network link</a> <img src="http://www.gearthblog.com/images/gelogoicon.gif" title="Google Earth File. You must have GE installed." border="0"> to find even more 3D models and select the placemark to load them up. <a href="http://www.gearthblog.com/blog/archives/2007/01/google_releases_new.html">See this</a> for more details.
</li>
* Roads of Brazil - Remember a few days ago when I said some of the new roads for Google Maps were not in GE? Well, they at least added the new ones for Brazil. But, where is Australia, New Zealand, etc? In fact, the crude base layers of roads for those two countries are gone now. Maybe that's a sign the new road layers are coming.
* Geographic Web - there seems to be a lot more Panoramio photos in the "Geographic Web" layer.
* "Sunrise Earth" - Under the "Featured Content" layer you will find "Discovery Network", there is now a new sublayer called "Sunrise Earth". This shows placemarks for locations where Discovery HD has "Sunrise Earth" programs and if you click on the placemarks the picture is a link to 2.5 minute video clips from the programs.

To see the 3D models you have to download the newest version of GE (4.0.2722)

According to Google Earth Blog a huge update has happened.

A bunch of new imagery for Google Earth has been released. This came to my attention courtesy of an E-mail from GEB reader Artak in Germany. No word yet from Google on the official list, but here is a summary of places found so far (mostly by folks at the KugelErde.de - German Google Earth forum):

Germany - Wilhelmshaven, Hamburg, Lübeck, Travemünde, Timmendorfer Strand, Münster, Magdeburg, Chemnitz, Stuttgart, Rostock, Erfurt, Freiburg, Saarbrücken, Sylt, Aurich, Wiesmor, Mellum, Wangerooge, Spiekeroog, Langeoog, Norderney, Juist, Memmert, Borkum, Wiesmoor, Flensburg, Schleswig.
Netherlands
Yerevan, Armenia
Tunesia
Syria
Oregon, USA
Marshall Islands, French Polynesia
North Carolina, USA joins the list of entire state coverage with high resolution imagery
At least portions of Puerto Rico are updated - the blimp has moved.
Leeds, UK
Reykjavik, Iceland
Derby, England
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and substantial portions of Pennsylvania
Niagara Falls, New York
Also, according to GEB reader Dan Saxton, Canada has much better 3D terrain now.

This is the second imagery update in October. A highly unusual occurrence. Usually it's about 60 days between imagery updates.

wow, is this two weeks in a row?

What I've seen so far:
Oregon, Nebraska, and North Carolina are 100%
Various States like Mississippi have large additions. Pennsylvania is close to 100%.

Germany is finally 100%

The Netherlands has no new images, but somebody did some color correction to make the water blue instead of muddy-brown.

Tunisia looks 100%

I don't know if they were full before, but I think not. Israel, Palestine, Jordan and Syria all look like they are 100% now.

That's what I've found so far.

O RLY? Looks like Heligoland and some others of the new updated german areas are definitely more hi-res that e.g. my area :slant:

Otherwise the maps of my home area now are really much better than they were last year - one could barely identify my village, now i can see my house, even it's not a really good view.

Maybe it's not too bad that nobody can see me mowing the lawn (or sitting on the terrace, drinking my cider). ;)

There's been another update. I guess I missed some of the previous one like Germany, but Oregon and North Carolina are 100% filled. I believe Nebraska's 100% fill is also new.

There are a lot of other updates. Parts of Boston. Most of Pennsylvania. Portsmouth, UK ...

Gerardo Paz and I just spent some time and we found some other sites with new high resolution imagery:

Antarctica now has new broad imagery from the Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica Project

San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina - a favorite place of Gerardo's is there
The island of Montserrat - including the new volcano is now in high res. And the terrain is updated to show the new volcano's terrain
The Ile des Saintes, Guadaloupe are now in high res
Canoun and Tobago Cays, in the Grenadines are updated
Dominica is entirely high res now
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the western part of Virginia was all high res before...?

I've seen a lot of updated tiles. There are scattered ones on Ireland, India, Japan, China, and Russia that I've seen so far.

Note -- almost all of the Russian Northern Fleet is updated except Severomorsk and perhaps Arcangel.

There are updates all over. Sections of British Columbia (Canada) got some nice updates. The main central area of Tokyo got a huge update with some fantastic resolution. It looks like it's Spring as there seem to be cherry trees blossoming. I can tell Osaka got an update because you can now see the ferris wheel on top of the HEP 5 building.

Anyway, enjoy looking around for more updates!

Yup, and a lot more too!

Connecticut is vastly improved, including the submarine base at New London.

Parts of Philadelphia got updated.

Deleware is vastly improved.

Most of New Jersey got an update, though I don't think the quality of the image improved.

Cyprus is now 100% and a 'unified' set of tiles for the most part.

Syria is definitely 100% now and also a unified data set.

Frankly, it looks like much of Israel and Palestine and some of the surrounding countries got updates, though I'm not certain how much.

Norfolk, VA got a big update and is vastly improved in quality. It's also much more up to date, meaning I'll have to update my placemark file now.

Hawaii is now 100% completed with decent aerial imagery. Take a look at the steam coming up from the coast on the Big Island where the lava is hitting the ocean.

That's mostly what I've found so far.

Munden
05-14-2008, 02:45 AM
Another clue that Lisbon was updated is that a large portion of the Navy base there is now censored. :( Strangely, only part of it is censored and the other part is in very high, clear resolution.

Bizarre.

I've still only found that one tiny addition to the list, but I took the time to update my San Diego base placemarks.

05-14-2008, 02:56 AM
ha, wouldn't you know I'd find something after that post. A large portion of northern New Jersey has been updated. You see it as a large patch that almost borders the Hudson River. The areas right along the river didn't get an update as they're in much better images that 'leak' over from Manhattan.

I noticed my old set of placemarks for Teterboro airport aren't valid anymore. :( I had to check Google Maps to make sure it was a new update, and it is.

Portugal - Looks like areas in Portugal have new imagery.

Czech Republic - entire country has Spot Image (medium resolution 2.5 meter)

Slovakia - entire country with Spot Image

Hungary - entire country with Spot Image

Australia - All of western Australia has Spot Image as well!

Mexico - Central Mexico has Spot Image imagery

Italy - Rome, Naples

Now that I have the new system up and running, I can see that they've updated some of CA around San Francisco. I won't be sure until I get my old placemarks up on the new system, but I can tell that the area around Suisun Bay and Mare Island got an update. I'll have to update my reserve fleet posting to match what's visible now.

Actually, some changes are in Singapore I believe. Just before I lost my old system, I looked through many of the sets of placemarks and so I know that until recently all of the semi-submersible Transshelf was visible. Now only half is visible. Also, the area where the Botero bird sculpture is has changed with some buildings overlapping others where they didn't do that before. The main parts of the water next to Singapore (southwest) look far more patchy than they were before too. Some of the dredgers in operation are visible again.

Another big update. This time, however, it's Street View images.

The most massive update is clearly Australia where quite a lot of the country has been photographed. There is still a lot to cover, but many of the major cities are photographed along with what must be thousands of miles of highways crossing the outback.

Japan has several cities updated, including some on the northern island of Hokkaido as well as the main island of Honshu. Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto would be primary among that update.

In addition to those updates, quite a few cities in the US have now been added. I think New Orleans is probably the most relevant and worth a look. Other areas include Chattanooga (Tennessee), Springfield (Illinois), Springfield (Missouri) and many others I'm reasonably certain are either brand new or expanded.

EDIT: I'm confident that Massachusetts also has had coverage expanded considerably across the State.

Eastern Mass: Where I live. The quality went down, down, down. It's terrible, blurry, and you can barely make out anything. Furthermore, the imagery went back in time about 5 years...now it shows our old high school (in bad resolution), whereas the previous imagery showed the new school.

Which brings us the question:
Would you prefer:
-Hi-res, old imagery
or
-Medium-res, new imagery
or
-Complete earth coverage, but medium-low-res, old imagery?

Munden
09-06-2008, 09:09 PM
It's an interesting question, Spider. Generally, I prefer a higher resolution, though if it gets too old I start to get frustrated that certain things aren't visible.

Over all I don't mind having medium resolution such as what is often used to fill in European countries. It really is a good way to cover an entire country while we wait for them to get high resolution imagery. (Prague is a good example)

I don't mind waiting these days. There's plenty to look at right now.

In the USA, Virginia has two patches so far. One is out in the middle of the State, but the other one is in Northern Virginia, which is the southern section of the Washington DC area. They didn't do 100% of the area, but most of it. My office is FINALLY visible, heh. Judging from the date displayed, we were just about to begin moving into it from a different location.

Also in the USA, the coloration looks very different in North Carolina. I'm not certain about it, though. There are so many areas visible now that it's hard to keep track of these things.

Turkey looks different to me as well. I can't remember if it got the SPOT imagery previously though.

New Google Earth Imagery: 13-October-2008

[UPDATED 0645 ET 14-Oct-2008: Make sure you check "View in Google Maps" to confirm the imagery is new before leaving a comment.]

Just started getting reports of places with new or updated high resolution imagery. Keep sending in reports if you find something new. You can tell if an image is new by clicking the "View in Google Maps" link in GE to compare. Google Maps doesn't yet have the new imagery so if the imagery isn't the same - its new. Here's the list of places found so far:

*

India - New medium resolution Spot Image background imagery for a big portion of India. Thanks to GEB reader Alok Patel for being the first to report new imagery.
*

US - Looks like a big portion of North Carolina has new unattributed aerial imagery - or at least it is color processed differently. Big area around Salt Lake City, Utah has new imagery from the State of Utah. Fairfax County Virginia - thanks to GEB reader Ben. Spotsylvania County, Virginia - new high res. Areas of Beaumont, TX. Thanks to Munden.
*

Mexico - An area in northern Mexico has new medium resolution Spot Image imagery - adding to the Spot imagery in a recent update for Mexico. A bunch of the islands around Baja have also been added with better resolution from Spot Image.
*

Romania - Looks like the country of Romania has new medium resolution Spot imagery as well.
*

Spain - Menorca, Mallorca - Thanks to GEB reader Rene73
*

Czech Republic - the entire country has new high resolution imagery from a provider called GEODIS Brno. Very nice! Thanks to GEB reader Rene73
*

More Eastern European Countries - New medium resolution Spot Image imagery in the northern part of Albania, most parts of Montenegro, Kosova, Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, and Serbia. Thanks to GEB reader Edi.
*

Italy - Capri, Elba, Firenze, Urbino, Verona - Thanks to GEB reader Ezra.
*

Australia - Big region in the northeast now has medium resolution Spot Image imagery. Thanks to GEB reader 'toler'. Ayer's Rock has new high res imagery.
*

Norway - Trondheim. Thanks to GEB reader Esme Cowles.
*

Canary Islands - Futureventura, Tenerife - The SS American Star wreck has has almost disappeared beneath the water now. The imagery date for the Canaries says 2008! Thanks to James at GoogleSightseeing.com for this find. See his post for more details and a link to the ship location.
*

South Africa - Areas around Johannesburg
*

Guinea Bissau - New highres patch near Bafata. Thanks to Snakeye.
*

UK - Lundy Island high res now. Thanks to Munden. Also, Aberdeen, Hampshire, North Lincolnshire, part of Derbyshire. Thanks to James.

I've not seen anything big, but there might be a scattering of smaller updates. I just spotted that Google has inserted a bit of satelllite imagery on top of the Naval Observatory in Washington DC so that it's no longer censored. This is similar to updates elsewhere in France and Spain to keep censored areas visible.

Munden
01-18-2009, 07:11 AM
Actually, Washington DC itself got a big update. Note that the WWII Memorial is now finished where it was still under construction in their older imagery. The update includes the downtown area, spreading out to include a solid chunk of the Potomac, down to including part of the Wilson Bridge. I wish they'd gotten down to the National Harbor, but this isn't so bad. The update seems to include verything in the DC border. Some of the imagery was taken with the trees bare, but it's all different from 2008 and different from Google Maps.

You can even see that "The Awakening" is gone from it's old location too. Nice update. Hope there's more!

Something else that's curious, though, is that the Capitol Building, where Congress meets, is still the old 2002 imagery. It hit me when I realized there was still construction on the east side of it.

I'm guessing the building was censored in the new aerial imagery and Google didn't want to lose the spiffy aerial imagery they have and go down to satellite images like they had to do with the Naval Observatory. Thus their only option was to leave in the older aerial image.

Sorry for the waiting.

Google recieves the map data from various providers. It's then up to Google to update them into GE when they recieve them.

Sometimes you can experience that Google has inserted an older map than the current one. You can use the Timeslider feature in GE to see it, It's the cloock you see in the upper bar, to see the changes in GE from low resolution to high resolution. And sometimes back again. :(

New update going on right now.

Found new images in Serbia, region Vojvodina. Big part of south Vojvodina now has hi res images from GeoEye April 15 2009.

I checked out some random spots, and Cape Canaveral looked different to me. Previously it was grainy and I believe it was GeoEye imagery. The towers look to be in different locations and the imagery is much clearer. Does it look that way to anyone else?

The Serbian imagery mentioned is also the same in Google Maps for me. I don't if they're jumping on their updates really quickly now or what.

Cape Canaveral is, as far as I can see, updated. I had to look back with the timeslider to be sure. 2006 and 2010 images looks the same but the shadows are different and also the angles. Also the launch platforms looks different.

And it's allready in GEB:

They update maps very quickly this time.

Search for towns like "Ruma" or "sremska mitrovica" in serbia and youll see the image is from Apr 15 2009 (GeoEye), and if you go to time slider and go back one time youll see the old image that was taken Apr 27 2007

FYI, their network link now shows the most recent set of imagery updates. You can now use it to check on what was changed.
