Google Earth Adds New Images In Spain
Google Earth has added some new imagery in Spain according to the Google Earth Blog.
Frank Taylor writes," There’s a noticeable new area of imagery on the eastern edge of Spain covering Barcelona, which is copyrighted "Institut Cartogrfic de Catalunya". This imagery is not particularly high resolution – I would estimate about 1 meter/pixel. Not as good as Digital Globe, which is 60 cm/pixel."
He points out that there is new aerial imagery for a number of towns in Spain including, Valladolid, Leon, Burgos, Avila, Segovia, Salamanca, Andalucia, and Catalua. "The imagery for these towns is very good quality, but there is no attribution for who provided the imagery. Much of this imagery is 20 cm / pixel or better resolution….quite good," Taylor notes.
Here is a list of the most recent Google Earth updates according to Taylor’s blog.
