More Imagery added to Google Earth

    January 23, 2006

From the official Google weblog word of improvements to the imagery in Google Earth and Google Local…

New additions include the addition of extensive 6-inch imagery for many parts of the U.K. and they’ve also updated the Google Local database to match the coverage they have in Google Earth (nice addition!)

Finally, the addition of two more zoom levels in Google Local’s Satellite mode… meaning you can see much more detail in areas where the imagery is high enough in resolution. They cite as an example, people standing at the gates of Buckingham Palace are now visible!
