Australia Day Flyover Imagery in Google Maps

Bondi Beach Australia in Google MapsAs promised, Google has released the imagery it had taken during Australia Day at the end of January. There were some complications with the flight plan which prevented the plane from being where planned during the day. But, the pilot still flew along several beaches and some of the planned locations at later times during the day. The imagery has been added to Google Maps, but Google Earth doesn't have the update yet (don't worry, I'll let you know when it's in Google Earth). Some of the new imagery is as high as about 3 inches/pixel. Clear enough to make out clothing on people, but not clear enough to see who they are. Here are the locations of some of the imagery in Google Maps:

    Wow! This is so beautiful. Those sandy beaches, full of people! Amazing! Is this going to get even better as camera resolutions increase? It's a bit scary...

    There's a lot of folks with skin-coloured swim suits at Bondi Beach :)
