Recently an update has been made in the high resolution image of Google Earth, in this case most are cities that already had images but have been updated with material generally from the year 2007.

From Europe this time nothing has come out for Spain, although yes Virtual Earth did it last month; but yes for other European countries and the White House in Morocco. We do see in Mexico, Central America and something in the southern cone.

Here is the list of Hispanic countries:


Mexico Tijuana
South America

Brazil: Brasilia, Sao Paulo
Uruguay montevideo

Central America

Haiti: Port-au-Prince

United States

Santa Rosa (CA)
Thousand Oaks (CA)
Newberg (OR)
Bee Cave (TX)
El Paso (TX)
South Dakota
Long Island

A novelty is that you are already seeing an image based on the base of 2.5 m, at least in India and Australia
