Google Earth, May 2008 Update


If much pomp came the data update in Google Earth for the Month of May, compared to that of April which was quite significant.

The bad

In our Hispanic environment there was hardly any update of high resolution images of Ecuador and Peru.

While updating images (without specifying what type) is reported in Madrid, Spain and in at least 7 locations in Portugal.

In the vicinity of Western Europe, a couple of locations are reported in France (Toulon, Montbeliard), Holland (Assen) and Italy (Milan)… ah, also Isle of Man and Suffolk in England.

In the United States, if a good number of cities are reported and additionally, almost part of the United States in Puerto Rico is being updated on the digital terrain model.

Not so bad

And with the custom that we have to demand from Google what gives us almost free, we have the doubt of a certain image of Australia that they express is of 2.5 mts of pixel (how much is the rest they serve?) We must also recognize that no Stop remembering us Spanish speakers.

The good

Perhaps it is an effort that of course, for them it is money but they do not do Live maps, Yahoo maps and the others that are often launched in large markets. As a result, although the Spanish-speaking world has a reputation for not buying legal software, browsing a lot and buying little (compared to Anglo-Saxons)

… However, thanks to Google’s initiative to consider this market, Spanish is currently the second language in Google Search… and that’s why we can scratch chips in Clicks to AdSense to compensate for our sleeplessness and hobbies.
