Google maps data increased and improved

April 25th, 2006

Over the past few weeks and days, Google maps has made significant improvements, adding newer and higher resolution satellite images for many areas, increasing its coverage in Europe, providing street maps and driving directions for parts of Europe. Check out the 3 inch pixel resolution for Baltimore. Unfortunately, UMBC is just outside the area updated, and the images still look like they are three years old. Spotted on Google Earth Blog.
