    Default New update in GE

    Catalonia/Spain - My story about 3D Roses is a popular story right now, and that's where people first started reporting the new imagery. The entire Catalonia area has new imagery mostly dated September 2006 by the Institut Cartográfic de Catalunya.

    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

    Venezuela- Maracaibo

    Germany - center of Munich

    Canada - Quebec

    California - Areas around San Francisco, San Diego, Benicia, Solano County

    USA - Looks like all of New Mexico has high resolution now. Credits to NMR GIS dated July 2005.

    Clearly, they waited until my main computer went belly up to add imagery.

    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.

    Barcelona hasn't been updates, as well as Madrid. They're both the same they used to be, 100% certain.

    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?

    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.
