    Default Google Maps 45 Degree Imagery Locations discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Google Maps 45 Degree Imagery Locations

    The outlines show the general area where you can find 45 degree imagery. It's simply far too time consuming to precisely follow every twist and turn in the actual line, but the outlines are along the edges. As time goes and Google adds more areas, I will continue to update this file. Please see my post in the forums about 45 degree imagery for a tutorial and a city list.

    Las Vegas (northern section)
    Boulder City, NV

    Expanded:
    Salt Lake City, UT (vastly larger now)
    San Antonio, TX

    I think I've finished all of the new places that had to be added. There are still some locations I need to make certain haven't been expanded yet though.

    I fixed New Orleans, which had been expanded to the east.

    They did an update, so I'm adding cities. There's still quite a few left to go, but here's the first update to my file.

    Added:
    Augusta, Georgia
    Boise, Idaho
    Boston, Massachusetts
    Knoxville, Tennessee
    Provo, Utah (it was added to the Salt Lake City imagery)
    Reno, Nevada
    Tallahassee, Florida
    Witchita, Kansas

    I think it's back up to date again.

    Added:
    Spain: Badajoz, Girona, and Merida
    Switzerland: Lausanne
    USA:
    Little Rock, Arksansas
    Montgomery, Alabama
    Salem, Oregon
    Spokane, Washington

    (California)
    Fairfield and Vacaville
    Lodi
    Modesto
    Murietta Hot Springs (added to Los Angeles, also deleted the Hemet polygon since it was also added to Los Angeles)
    Sebastapol
    Vallejo (added to San Francisco, part of the Suisun Bay Reserve Fleet is visible) this also joined Napa Valley to San Francisco, so I merged those polygons too.
    Victorville
    Yucaipa (added to Los Angeles)

    Some of these had very odd shapes. The area added for Yucaipa in particular is very odd. It has tattered edges and a missing strip down the middle.

    They expanded the coverage of Boise, ID and south of San Jose such as adding Gilroy. They also pushed the eastern edge of the Oakland area off into the mountains rather than cutting off some of the communities on the edge.

    I'm continuing to look for more expansions like this and new cities.

    I've added their expanded coverage to the west and some south of New Orleans.

    I also outlined two newly added small towns in California: Davis and Dixon.

    I made another minor update. I found that the California cities of Merced and Atwater were added at some point. I've included those in the file now.

    They added some imagery that was missing near Los Angeles. There's still a very odd patch missing, but the port is now visible. Take a look at the two SeaLaunch platforms for instance.
