New Data For Google Earth/Google Local

Google has just announced new satellite/aerial imagery data for Google Local - data that has already been in Google Earth for a few weeks. Google Local now sees the more up to date data already in Google Earth, and they have added TWO EXTRA ZOOM LEVELS for Google Local! You can still zoom in farther in Google Earth, but it's nice to have the two applications come closer together.

Here's the blog entry at the official Google Blog.

I just wish this meant there were an update to the primary Google Earth database for some new satellite/aerial imagery...

    You are not the only one wishing for higher resolution aerial imagery. While I'm pretty happy about US urban resolution in GE, rural areas, even in the US are very lacking. I've taken to stitching older black and white imagery (from USA Photomaps) as image overlays over GE's "default" for rural sites of interest to my corporation. While the data isn't as clear, new, or portable as GE's "default" urban imagery, it is far better than GE's "default" rural imagery.
