Google Earth imagery update!

We haven’t heard anything official, but Google Earth has just received an imagery update.

Some places with updates include:

  • New York, US (Manhattan in particular, but likely more widespread)
  • Dubai
  • Christchurch, New Zealand
  • Cape Town, South Africa
  • Bucharest, Romania
  • Honolulu, Hawaii, US

If you find others, please let us know and we’ll add to the list.  Remember, to find out if something has changed or not view it in Google Earth and Google Maps at the same time.  Google Earth has been updated, but Maps hasn’t yet.  If the images are different, then it’s new.



Update: The Google LatLong Blog has posted a short “Where In The World Is?” quiz that might help you find a few more locations.
