New high resolution imagery for Google Earth

Google Earth AntarcticaGoogle has updated the imagery for Google Earth, providing high definition views of many more locations, including:
  • UK images have been updated so that most of England is now in high resolution
  • New color mapping for Germany
  • Parts of Antarctica, Greenland, and Canada have been updated (we'll refrain from making jokes about similar numbers of people living in each of these places)
  • High resolution updates for parts of Japan, Russia, New Zealend, Iran, Spain, Austria
  • More high resolution images for U.S. cities including Washington D.C., St. Paul Minnesota, and Houston Texas
While it's pretty cool that you can zoom in on parts of Antarctica, it turns out that there's really just not that much to look at.
