Hi
Does anyone know (guess) when google earth will update its images of NZ. I notice it is at least 18months old.

We are probably too small to be of concern to Google...

try sunbathing naked on your roof, that seems to attract the attention of the satellites

I remember seeing a statement somewhere that they update at least every 2 years.

And it is not only in NZ - my brother-in-law's back garden in southern England looks like it did several years ago, before he remodelled it.

i agree, seeing spaghetti junction half finished is a little bit odd, and last time they came over west auckland it was really early morning, so there is shadows cast all over everything

then again, the rest of nz is gradually gettting higher res images, so maybe they simply want to get the whole country covered first

Just as a matter of interest. Go and look at Napier then move south down the coast to the second river then move up the river till you get to a join in the image, interesting eh.

Are we looking at how the river has altered course??? That is all I see.

I don't think Google actually have anything to do with taking the photos anyway. If you have a look you will see that images for different places are credited to different sources. I thought it was just a matter of whether there were hi-res photos available for their use. Could be wrong, of course.

No in one image the river is in flood and in the other it ain't.
