Google Earth updates first world dataset

Almost exactly three months after the last (mammoth) dataset update, Google Earth has once again gotten new data. This time, it’s the first world’s turn again — there appears to be a lot of new high resolution imagery for the US and Europe. I’m on an island, so my timing is terrible, but at least Frank hasn’t dropped the ball. He’s got the list.

For Dutch speakers, Belgeoblog estimates the Belgian data to have been from around May 2004. Francophone blog eMich does some impressive correlation of dates with specific data for Belgium.

Meanwhile Bergen, Norway, whose city council donated high resolution imagery to Google Earth, is now in glorious high resolution. It sure is a pretty place:-)
