Down Under and Kiwis Get Roads in Google Maps

GoogleMapsMania reports that Google Maps got a data update last night which gives Australia and New Zealand detailed road maps. Further inspection shows that the road layer has not fully migrated to the Satellite - Hybrid view. More importantly, a quick check does NOT show detailed roads yet for Google Earth. In the past, Google has released new road data layers in Google Earth first, then Google Maps. I guess they wanted to give maps a chance this time. Hopefully, the road data will migrate to the GE database soon. Since there hasn't been a formal announcement from Google, they probably haven't finished deployment of the new road data layers.

    That's great. I have been using ZoomIn.co.nz (who look like they heavily copied Google Earth) quite happily, but with Google Maps getting the data at last, I expect Google Earth to get it too, and that would be sweeeeeet
