    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.

    Default New York State Update

    You also forgot to mention that there updates in New York State too. I live in Western New York State and my hometown has been updated as long as the surrounding cities and towns.

    Default 100%

    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...

    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.

    Not only in high resolution, the picture of the area I live are also very resent.
    I can see the mini-round-abouts built only last year.

    This sucks...around 5-6 of my files (unapproved) no longer exist because of this update. I had some cool placemarks, and in the update, the quality went DOWN. That just sucks....



    Sometimes I really hate you google.....

    Or my bad luck....

    My mind works better in sentences with spaces and long paragraphs loose me sometimes cause I need to picture what is going on at the same time I am reading.
