  1. how come maps are not up to date ? have a coworker who has live in his new house for a year in Omah ,Ne and his address can not be found on google earth

  2. They don’t usually announce when map data is updated, so I’m not sure how that works. It might be updated on a rolling basis, rather than big pushes like they do for the imagery.

    Even the newest imagery is surprisingly old. Google Earth just updated the area around my house with brand new data, but it’s about nine months old. I would have to think that the address data is at least that old, if not older.

    I’ll see if I can find some info on how often that kind of information is updated.
