Google Earth Imagery Update Nov 06

Friday, 24th November 2006 by

There's been another image update to Google Earth, as announced by PenguinOpus on the Google Earth forums. The updated areas are:

  • 12 high-resolution cities in Germany (Bayreuth, Bochum, Castrop-Rauxel, Fulda, Hof, Mannheim, Marburg, Potsdam, Schweinfurt, Siegen, Unna Froendenberg, Wuerzburg)
  • 6 high-resolution regions in the UK (Bridgend, Cleveland, Dundee, Plymouth, Poole, Rochford)
  • 31 city updates from Digital Globe
  • entire island of Oahu
  • Imagery from individual cities/counties: Grants Pass, OR; City of Kent, WA; Salem, OR; Douglas County, WA; Hartford County, MD; Jackson County, OR; Summit County, OR;
  • Expanded/updated coverage for the states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Indiana, and Florida
  • Darfur
  • 66 Islands
  • improved SF/Bay area water

Unfortunately, the imagery update has not yet made its way into Google Maps, but I'm sure it won't be too long until the two are in sync again.
