I see that you have Wrexham UK as in 'Clwyd'. I have a place in Bulgaria, start build was , still just a big field, looking forward to a new look. I live in my house in Germany since 8 years and still the area is urban in google. According to your report I am at a very remote place. But that is not true. What is the population of your area?
The Street View feature of Google Maps stitches together degree photos of a location, and there is a way to see when an image was. View a map over time Google Earth automatically displays current imagery. To see how images have changed over time, view past versions of a map on a.
Maybe not many people there use Google Earth if it;s an older demographic so there isn't demand despite it being an urban area? Or maybe Google just haven't got around to it yet. In such large operations, there will always be places over looked unfortunately.
I've always found this a little strange. I live in a little town in SE Scotland. Google has never given us a picture we could make anything of. It's a satellite image, so has the "landscape of psychedelic blurs" you describe above but to add further insult, the picture was taken on a cloudy day!!! For years us locals had a theory that the lack of definition had something to do with the Nuclear Power Station just two minutes down the road.
This theory was then blown apart by that other large American computer company who produced an aerial image I can almost read my number plate on and that's when the car's parked outside the power station! Always thought that Google update images depending on total views, search and zooms of areas.
For me though it is very strange that one picture of Baikal Lake in Russia has never been updated - you can see something like a shoe lace on it 82 km long and 2km wide ; ,E 53,N. Theres loads of places all over Russia and China which are never updated. Many people think it; because they have unreported submarines or installations there and their governments told them to 'stay away'. And Google does have to tread lightly. They're already backing out of China it would seem due to censorship, the last thing they need is to annoy the Kremlin.
Anyway, I'd say it just because the areas are too remote and all these images which arouse suspicious are just shadows, ridges etc My brother lives in the state of Washington and his subdivision used to be on Google Earth, but the current picture reverted to a pre-subdivision bulldozed piece of ground over three years ago and has never returned. The "Historical Imagery" feature now available allows him to go back to when GE did show his house, but the current view shows nothing at all. Attempts to bring this to the attention of GE via their web site have been to no avail.
My town is fairly small, but it has been updated at least within the past years. Not that great, but a lot better than I expected. Street view is funny, though. My town is considered a "gas station town" And, that's exactly what the Google car did. Pulled into town, got gas, and left.
I do notice that some high security areas missile complexes, nuclear enrichment facilities, secret experiment area Not too secret to locals, but supposed to be aren't blurry. Probably because they don't show anything Not new images, but somewhat recent.
Of course, I'm not sure about the accuracy. My brother in law's grass was green Not sure if that was in this century or last From researching the topic, and trust me its a VERY grey area, Google only seem to distort images which could be used aggressively by others especially paramilitaries and terrorists. Well it would be impossible, even for Google, to offer fresh images of every corner of the world. It makes sense to update more frequently the high searched areas, like New York.
My city Monterrey, Mexico just got street view, meaning a great update on maps and google earth. Google earth history feature shows updates every years, average, not bad for a non-US City. Although I've used it to show relatives places they used to live when they were in the US. It's a really cool feature. Let;s hope Google keep expanding it! A friend and I were playing around with GOogle Earth one night and looking for our homes Followed the camera pics down my road, until they got to the intersection just before my home I felt so gyped When indulging a curious moment, I was using google earth around the beverly hills area.
How much do some celebrities pay to have google earth blur their estates? There were some that were definitely being blurred to the general public. Can't say I don't blame them.
They get down to street level and take a picture of your neighborhood. They don't specify which house is a specific address so I onl;y hope I don't live across the street someone is looking for! I've never heard of celebrities paying to have their estates blurred. Bu I guess it makes sense - they wouldn't want the tabloids etc MUO policy is to not allow reprints of articles. However, if you wish to have it reviewed on a case basis if you think you site will bring traffic, I suggest contacting Aibek, Mark or Jackson.
My house doesn't even exist according to Google Earth. The dirt lot is shown, but the house itself is nowhere to be seen. But, my house was only built two years ago, so I guess it makes sense: Half of my neighborhood isn't even built in my image. Google Earth says it is from Feb , which sounds about right.

And the area close to Tuscaloosa Alabama has not been updated since Our place in Texas hasn't been updated for over 5 years. Ismayilli,Azerbaijan has not updated never. The satellite view related Our place in South Australia hasn't been updated for some five years or more. Saskatchewan needs an update!! Totally agree on Bevs comment about Saskatchewan!! Our province definitely needs an update!!
London , ilford area needs a good update. Its way to blurry.
My area has not updated for more than 5 years! Is there any way to prompt an update? We were updated in the last years. My neighborhood hasn't been updated since , a real bummer. Imagery for my home is 4 years old. My house in the Nevada desert hasn't been updated for over five years! Alabama first needs to be brought into the 21st Century.
I'm a fan of makeuseof.. I'm just a blob coz im from Pakistan. I have a place in Bulgaria, start build was , still just a big field, looking forward to a new look AJ. I guess we're just really boring!! For example, here is a street view image of Gramercy Park in New York City, at the bottom left hand corner is the copyright, source of the image and the date it was taken:. Previously, the only way to see when a street view image was taken was via Google Earth.
We wrote about that in November Again, I am not sure when Google added dates to the web version of Google Maps Street View images but it is interesting to see there. Daniel from the Google Maps team wrote in the Google Maps Help forum that you can retrieve the dates of the image on the "bottom left corner of the Street View image.
Forum discussion at Google Maps Help. Websonic told me the dates were added a couple months ago. Windows 7 Support Ends on January 14, Need your valuable opinion:
