Google Maps Satellite Photos Updated
« on: November 24, 2012, 02:44:12 PM »
All,

I noticed that google had updated the satellite photos.  It looks like it was earlier this spring/summer.

They have a pretty good resolution.  See if you can find the #10 out on the line!

We can narrow it down a lot more than that. The exterior walls are up for the restrooms but the trusses are not on.

Google maps has been updated again. The garage slab is poured in the pictures.

Good news! We've made it onto Street View as well. Guess whose truck is in the lot? They must have come by not long before the slab was poured for the garage.

If you take Google Maps out of satellite view and look at the roads - you will see that they mapped our track, including the yard! (There are some small errors to the actual track plan, but that is very impressive.)
