    Default Google earth-satelite

    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...

    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
    When it comes to computers there is a difference to what you need and what you want, the former being less than half the price of the latter.

    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.

    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.
