  • I got Google Earth years ago, and updated it. Even though the old pictures still old. But it did add in new pictures. Although pictures are not perfect, we could still enjor it.

  • Google Earth provides pictures. It’s like the picture that a camera took. It isn’t a camera. The developers pay more attention to pictures they haven’t than to updating pictures they have. But they still update pictures like more or less one to two years.

  • One to three years? It depends. Pictures in Google Earth is not collected in 'real time'.

  • Google Earth streams the pictures from the internet as you are using the program. If you go off line it will gather the pictures from cache but it takes a while depending on the amount of cache you choose to store etc. So basically you get new pictures as they come. They get more pictures about once a year I think. Those cars that drive around and gather information for GPS etc take about 6 months before it reaches the GPS devices that get sold in stores or as updates for example.

  • they use various satellites that orbit the earth, they compile million upon millions of images to make one true earth, rather than update the pictures they have they are more working on composing pictures of the places they haven't, and they do actually update there pictures just not very often because it would take a hell of a lot of work.
    What they have done though is bring along street view, enable this in the bottom left task bar and you can view any street in the united states, all the images used in street view are no more more 1-2 years old!
