Eye doctors should ready themselves for a flood of patients; Google Earth and Google Maps have just received yet another huge update that’s sure to have users squinting at their monitors all day and late into the night.

“[W]e’ve published a large amount of new high-res imagery around the world,” writes Matt Manolides on the Google LatLong Blog.  “[T]his release has mostly aerial (higher-resolution) data, as well as some medium-resolution imagery for large swaths of land.”

It’s at this point that skeptics might raise an eyebrow; what, exactly is “large”?  After all, Google claimed to have hit 130 countries in its last update, and 54 in the one before that.  If a person made the bad assumption that there was no overlap, this would leave very little of the world left over.

Manolides lists regions in a large number of counties, states, countries, and continents, however, once again giving the impression that a lot of work went into this.  Also, he states that there is now “2.5m imagery for the entire countries of . . . Tunisia, UAE, Jordan, Syria, Lebannon, and Israel.”

So, yeah – get out your glasses and eat plenty of carrots.
