Hi all
I have noticed lately that various areas have poor quality images.
See this (https://maps.google.co.nz/maps?q=Trewavas+Street,+Motueka&hl=en&ll=-41.12928,173.014755&spn=0.119603,0.214233&sll=-41.130908,173.02278&sspn=0.001869,0.003347&t=h&hnear=Trewavas+St,+Motueka+7120&z=13) and then this (https://maps.google.co.nz/maps?q=Trewavas+Street,+Motueka&hl=en&ll=-41.12928,173.014755&spn=0.029901,0.053558&sll=-41.130908,173.02278&sspn=0.001869,0.003347&t=h&hnear=Trewavas+St,+Motueka+7120&z=15) which is two clicks closer and when you get up close they seem to be very bad.
Has anyone of you come across this?:confused:

If you look at the Pic's some of them are not in actual colour, they are almost black/white.

Just looked my own house its been a while since the pictures were taken, a new garden layout we did over a year ago is not showing, only empty lawn.

Just looked at our Nelson house image date says 2009 yet the trees were not planted until 2011

I thought I had seen the linked area in the past and cannot remember any flaws.

If you have a look at the history there is an image a few days older that is good. They probably put the latest one in by error?

After driving around Central Auckland, and then viewing Google Maps Street View, the relatively new S/W Motorway 20 from Sandringham Rd Extension/MT Albert to Manukau has rain spots on their street images. (http://goo.gl/maps/PloAU)
