New Google Earth Shots
Thank you to all the people who have told me that Google Earth have updated their shots of Greenwich. I confess I’m usually so busy looking at the buildings I don’t notice whether or not there are leaves on the trees (which there weren’t with the last batch) so it took other eagle-eyed people to spot that.
Graham points out that the current set of pics were taken during the really dry spell last summer, which means that some of the buried features in Greenwich Park, for example, are easier to see. Graham’s marked evidence of a bomb crater on this map – but if you zoom in you can really see interesting features, most of which I suspect are remnants of the WWII bomb shelters we were talking about a couple of months ago.
Out of interest, is anyone collecting scans of the various Google Earth maps as they come out? They only change subtly but once they’re gone, they’re gone. Hmm. note to self…
