New Data Update in Google Earth!

[EDITED: 30-Mar 2006 at 07:00 EST] It's now official! Google released new satellite/aerial photo data for Google Earth on 23-Mar-2006. Here's a summary of the updates found so far:

30-Mar - More data was updated than previously thought Thanks to the efforts of 'Cyclonic' at the Google Earth Community, who is maintaining the database of all planes found in flight, numerous other locations updated in the 23-Mar update have been found. Places where planes were previously found were missing, which indicated the change in data. Most of the changes were small alterations to areas already in high-resolution, some cities are new though. Here's the list from 'Cyclonic's post:

  • Tempe, AZ
  • Phoenix, AZ
  • Sedona, AZ
  • Watsonville, CA
  • Byron, CA
  • Venice, FL
  • St Cloud, FL
  • E of Pittsburgh, PA
  • S of Boulder City, CO
  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Montreal, CAN
  • Toronto, CAN
  • Gifu Airport, Japan
  • Mountain Home AFB, ID
  • Philadelphia, PA
  • S of Hyderabad, India
  • Damascus, Syria
  • Bangkok, Thailand
  • Oson, SKorea
  • Incheon, SKorea
  • Many African Capitals

Here's list of known updates shortly after the announcement:

  • This new data is not in Google Local/Maps yet. - But, Google says it will be later.
  • The basemap for the whole Earth has been changed to another source called TrueEarth. This new data looks better than the old one. Look at all the continents more closely. The colors are much more vibrant and green. (Read one of the comments below which explains more about the TrueEarth data)
  • Most of Germany is now in high resolution
  • Some minor fixes to old data
  • It also appears many Tropical Islands are in higher resolution than before, this includes French Polynesia, some in the Caribbean and the Azores.
  • Even many of the Atolls in the Pacific Islands around French Polynesia are much sharper.
  • The beautiful shallow turquoise waters around the Bahamas have been put back
  • More of the islands in the Caribbean are in higher resolution (previously just fuzzy blotches) - e.g. some of the Grenadines.
  • New high resolution photos for parts of the Maldives Island group. I found this cool seaplane flying there. Here's a blog entry about the new Maldives photos.
  • I'm getting reports of other random changes. For example the photo in Taiwan of the Taipei 101 tower shows it under construction now, whereas before it was finished (so an older photo now). Check out the 3D model of Taipei Tower if you want to really see it finished.

Here's the official announcement from Google (which doesn't include all the details above).

Check out the Sightseeing, 3D Models, and Flying categories for places to see in Google Earth.

    VERY Nice!
    The TruEarth basemap is much better than the old one, both in resolution and color.

    But I'll never be entirely happy until they give us a stereo viewing option!

    Thx google - any update in resolution is always appreciated. I wish you would update all of EU into high-resolution - there are plenty of absolutely miserable resolution patches. I guess Germany got updated because of the World Cup in Soccer, but please don't forget that EU is 25 countries, not only the selected few. You have plenty of users from all of EU.

    Hmm. And it looks like they have reduced the coverage of other areas, for example Johannesburg, South Africa now only has the "wireframe" map, when previously we could at least get to about a 500m resolution.

    Enviado por: Rogan at 24 de Marzo 2006 a las 07:56 AM

    Actually TruEarth is a just a modified version of what Google Earth already had. They are wrong in saying that it isn't Landsat. It is 15 meter Pan-Sharpened LandSat data, same the NaturualVue product that they already had. All that TruEarth did was apply a blue strech to the NaturalVue Imagery. In many ways it is worse. Look at South America, you can see that they processed each tile individually. Thus creating massive tile lines that wasn't in NaturalVue product(which used to be the background).

    the streets dont line up with the aerial photography.

    How do I re-set my copy of GE to get the new imagery ?



    Enviado por: Wayne Walton at 24 de Marzo 2006 a las 08:53 AM

    If you read the announcement, they have only fixed a small number of the alignment problems. All you need to do to get the new imagery is close and re-open Google Earth. I also recommend clearing your cache in the "Tools->Options".

    Why are not highly populated parts of the US not in high res yet? If this is a "free Country" (yeah right). IE: Westport, CT. Also, it looks like things have been erased! Chatham Massachusetts, the lighhouse at the coast guard station is missing from the high res - closest picture! Is this for national security? I dont trust this service from Google when things go missing! This is just wrong! Be afraid!

    Enviado por: Chris at 24 de Marzo 2006 a las 11:13 AM

    Google doesn't take all these pictures of places. All you EU people and everyone else need to realize that. If your nation doesn't have imagery in Google Earth it's because your nation didn't pay for it. There are some major towns in the United States without imagery because the town, burrough, or county didn't pay for images to be taken.

    Google doesn't make the data - they just collect it. If you don't have sattelite images of your hometown - write your government officials.

    When it was still Keyhole, I could see the cars in my driveway.

    I realize that Wichita, KS isn't too high on too many lists. However, it is in the top 50 us cities. It is also the largest city in the state of Kansas. I can't think of a good reason for google to still have half of the city is super low res format.

    Hey, great update from my country Germany! But: According to the Fifa World Cup, Google should show also ALL the Football (Soccer)Stadiums!

    But: They just put a very old Sat-pic of Cologne. There you can see the old stadium. Now (since 3 years!) we have a brand new stadium! Much nicer!

    Too bad for all the fans from England, Portugal, Angola, Sweden, France etc. who want to see the Stadium!

    I don't believe Google takes any images or controls any satellites. They buy the imagery like anyone else that wants a pic of their favorite spot. They are just making it available to us - for FREE. So if we don't like it, then we can open an account with GeoEye and buy all the imagery we want of our favorite spots on this beautiul earth.

    As a previous poster stated 'Be afraid", yes be very afraid, after a few years of being "googleized" they may just start charging for this free service !!

    Also Evansville, Indiana for example is still in crapola resolution. Must be some alien installation there to have the imagery obscured there.

    So you guys spend tons and tons of money imaging your own damn campus, and other nice points around the world. But you don't even start to image portions of the USA that would be extremely useful to a majority of your user base, maybe a nice higher-res image of Vermont and more of New England perhaps? What a nice forward way of thinking, eh? What good does it do me to stare at your campus for hours on end when the places of interest to me don't even show up?

    Sweden had fairly good resolution in many areas before, that has now been taken away! Why downgrade maps?? Also in general I think the colors and definition of the areas around the globe seems much less vibrant and distinct now after this upgrade. It all looks more like sn old schoolmap from the 50:ies...

    Enviado por: Zevs at 25 de Marzo 2006 a las 09:44 AM

    I agree with many previous posts. The new pics are worse than the old ones in many areas. Most of Australia is in low res, so as such is pretty useless.Pick up your game guys!!!!

    Enviado por: Scott at 26 de Marzo 2006 a las 08:43 AM

    I agree with PsiClops, the new basemap sucks! Don't give us an "enhanced" map, just give us reality. The whole world now looks dark, mottled, and sick... just look at North Africa or Australia or Argentina or Canada, for heaven's sakes. The old map looked exactly like the Earth from space: bright, vibrant, and beautiful. This new map looks like the world after a couple centuries of runaway pollution.

    Enviado por: JMAG at 26 de Marzo 2006 a las 09:22 PM

    As far as GE's swap from NaturalVue to TruEarth, there are basically three 15-meter resolution global imagery products on the market right now - NaturalVue, TruEarth and TerraColor. All three of these were created from the same base dataset - NASA's 15-meter false color mosaics built from 1999-2002 Landsat imagery. Each of the three products uses a different technique for transforming the false color imagery (built from Landsat bands 7, 4 and 2) into something that simulates the look of "true color" imagery built only from Landsat bands 3, 2 and 1. (The reason for using the NASA 742 mosaics is primarily economic - there are 8,500 Landsat scenes needed to cover the globe, and transforming an existing product to simulate natural color is much faster and less expensive than re-processing all 8,500 Landsat scenes again in real true color. There are also some issues with haze in true color that are reduced in false color.) There are some basic commonalities among the three products, but also some great differences. As far as which is the "best," beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It's clear that TruEarth has some seam problems that NaturalVue and TerraColor do not, but some people may prefer their overall "look." You can visit the company websites for these three products for more info on them.

    Well I live in Austrias (2 million) capital Vienna, and the images we had were not too good, but acceptable, but the new images are with clouds on them, so that you can't see about 10% of the area, because of the clouds! That sucks. The last version of Vienna had worse light, but at least you could see everything. And the "New" images are old. There are pictures of a shopping centre being not there yet, which was opened in 2004.

    Enviado por: Anders Lund at 29 de Marzo 2006 a las 05:48 PM

    It seems that many people here don't understand how this works. Google has NO control over what is in high resolution. They have to pay others for the imagery they use and sometimes they are forced to change some of the imagery to an older date. It is hard for a company to put something as great as GE together when most people do not pay for it, but they do. Finally, imagery from 2002 and 2003 are not that old, you can not expect new imagery to be taken all the time just because you want it.

    Please update the City of Oxford in the UK to high resolution. In annoying that Cambridge is shown in better detail. Our University is much better ;-)

    Many thanks.

    Gobabeb Namibia is a reknown world famous Desert Research Institution
    at 23Deg33Min 40 South / 15Deg02Min 30 East

    It is just outside the high resolution stretch East of Walvisbay/Namibia and many scientists would highly appreciate if the area could be included with high resolution
    Thanks and Regards Conrad Roedern, Solar Age

    In New Zealand Google Earth has Manukau shown in the far North of the country when In fact it is just a few Kilometers south of Auckland City.
    About 230 km away.
    I have contacted Google with no luck and allso Wikipedia.
    Would be great to see it in the right place.

    I'm from Western Iowa in the United States. I know that we're only a million measly souls, but the data on the entire half of the state (a middle sized state) looks as though a child drew it with Crayon. There is no way to see anything. Please fix this.

    If I want a high resolution picture of a certain place to be put up on google earth, can I ask to, and if so where can i ask?

    South Africa: GE previously had good quality photos where I could view to within a few meters high of a site (able to identify lines on the road surface). The quality for most parts of South African sites/regions are now disappointing.
    Is this temporary? If so, when could I expect improved visuals? A good example would be the Tswaing Crater just north of pretoria, South Africa.

    i have google earth free version and the map is like in 2000 or 2001 somthing like that and is there any updates for the free one, if i buy the google earth pro will the map be up to date?

    Enviado por: sidwilson at 1 de Mayo 2007 a las 07:27 AM


    Some areas of the imagery are much more recent than others. The most recent is typically 6 months old. All the versions of Google Earth show the same imagery - so you get the best imagery Google makes available with the free version.
