    Seriously - most of the stuff in my area is really outdated. There are WAY more bars near me.

    LOL. A lot of that stuff is really cool tho... ATMs and such. It'll be nice when they get more of that up to date (well, that and more than just the cities showing detail!)

    The map in my city has all the streets, including an area that's been built over the past several years, extending the residential neighborhoods about a mile. The satellite photos show dirt and construction equipment starting just 50 yards from my house.

    all i can say is that the photo cant be older then 3 and a 1/2
    years id say, do to if you check the wtc site, it fairly cleaned up in
    the photo's, so it had to be at least half a year after that.

    You think they just have a giant camera in space and photographed the entire world at the same time?

    no but, if i was them i would of rtarted in the US, so the other
    picture are newer!!

    im sure they photographed it by section either while it was clear
    or did some kind of image clean up o remove clouds or what
    not, or maybe the satelite takes a picture in the way it
    doesnt see the clouds, whatever it is. im sure if this was some
    kind of goal to accomplish they could get it done.



    plus i dont know if you noticed but the planet is round,
    so they must have had 2 or 3 or 4 giant cameras, or giant mirrors.

    The same logic would lead one to believe that the pictures in the US are updated more often.

    I think he knows. He was after all, stating that that notion was ridiculous.
