    Default Image Update

    I ran across the fact that we've had another standard image update. I was idly flying around the world and stopped at the Atlantis Dubai site, which I'd just placemarked a couple of days previously for my Part 2 of '50 Unusual Buildings' posts. Since I placemarked it, the image has been updated.

    Thus far I have only found an update around Dubai. All of their coastal development has been updated. The main land area also got an update and FINALLY the Burj Dubai can be seen mostly complete. The image is apparently from May 1, 2006.

    I'll keep looking for more updates. It might just be a small one this time around though.

    Did Egypt have an update, or has it been like that for awhile?

    They patched in a large section of imagery a while back. I don't think there's any changes. After putting in the changes, somebody went back and color-balanced the imagery, but that too was a while ago I think.

    Remember you've got a week or so to check it out in Google Maps to look for updates.

    Add Manhattan to the update. I have a few spots I know to check, and the Intrepid Museum got an update as the Concorde is now visible. I'll leave that to McMaster_de to placemark as that's probably more strongly in his interest area.

    Yea, I'm checking over the UAE area right now for my "longest ship" file and there's definitely new water tiles. There's three new 1100+ ships in the harbour, and that's all I've checked so far.

    Lightbulb Gabon, Africa under clouds since long

    Hi, I works in Oyem, north of Gabon, Africa ( 1░35'51N, 11░34'58).

    And I would like see the hospital where I works and the village and the vicinity and show them to the kids and people there and my friends here in Canada. But since 2004, threre is the same clouds and shadow all over the area.

    I know this area is the birthplace for clouds (...) .

    but is it possible that some pictures are free of clouds in the whole banks of pictures since that time ?.

    Hope this the good forum for asking update imagery.

    thanks

    Welcome to the forums, but sadly no, there is no forum where one can request imagery.

    This website isn't connected to Google other than that we enjoy using Google Earth. We're not a part of their company.

    Google has no forum where people can request imagery. They simply work at adding more and more of the world when they can buy the images and get them inserted.
