Comments on: New imagery for Virtual Earth http://www.digitalearthblog.com/200709/new-imagery-for-virtual-earth/ Keeping up with the various digital globe products from companies such as Google, Microsoft and more Sun, 16 Jun 2013 10:14:20 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.6.1 By: kjfitz http://www.digitalearthblog.com/200709/new-imagery-for-virtual-earth/#comment-125 Thu, 27 Sep 2007 15:14:49 +0000 http://www.digitalearthblog.com/2007/09/27/new-imagery-for-virtual-earth/#comment-125 Using the Virtual Globetrotting database I checked out some transients like planes in flight and it looks to me as though the Bird’s Eye View data is the same as has been there for quite a while.

Also you can usually ‘hack’ the URL with the scene number to jump through the new data. In the last update Dayton, OH was the highest numbered scene at around 16050000 (give or take a few thousand). There are still no new scenes beyond that.

I think this was a accidental re-announcement of the last update.

I had caught a few other typos in the list from their blog, but wasn’t aware of those.
