Google Maps updated imagery (Nov 18)

Postby homeworld1031tx » 10 Mar 2019 17:27

Google Earth has updated imagery for Dallas that is dated as Nov 2018. They must have put it up there fairly recently because I think I checked 2 weeks ago and it was still the Aug '17 imagery at that time.

Looking at the Uptown (or more generally north of downtown area) I'm really starting to see that the dream of a massive interconnected neighborhood is finally forming. Thanks to the last 10 years of low rise apartment infill we're really starting to see a contiguous bit of density across the entire region, in my opinion. Excited to see what the next ten years brings.

Finally. Although, I wish they had done it in a "greener" month than November. Better than January, but Spring/Summer always makes urban areas look better from above when things are greenest.

EDIT: Where did you get this imagery? When I look at Dallas on google maps, long completed projects are still missing. It's not nearly as updated as what was posted above.

Thanks for sharing! Strange but mine has not updated either. I still show McKiney & Olive as under construction along with a few other projects as well.

But yes, I totally agree that these next 10 years will be very interesting.

You have to go on actual Google Earth. It will update there a little bit before maps.google.com does

I hope they wait and retake the photos. The imagery on Google Maps may be outdated, but it is green and pretty. The photo posted above is winter brown and looks depressing.

Yes, my apologies, right now it is only visible on google earth. Should have picked a better title.

The regular google map aerial imagery seems to be finally updated, at least for the urban core. I'm still not happy they took the imagery in winter because of the "brown" look, but the increase in density was immediately noticed with all the new projects over the last 5 years.
