Matt Manolides, GIS Specialist Said

We’ve published brand new imagery of Beijing in time for the Olympics, and that some of the new imagery is less than 2 weeks old! Everyone on the imagery team is very excited to make this data available to you just before the start of the games; it’s very hard to get good satellite photos of Beijing due to clouds and other atmospheric conditions, but our partners GeoEye and DigitalGlobe pulled through and were able to get us some really amazing shots. Some updated areas include Beijing, Tianjin, Shenyang, and Quindao — you can check out the new data in both Google Earth and Google Maps.

Image quality is really good and you can see all the places where world’s best athletes compete with each other. Some of the updated areas are Beijing, Tianjin, Shenyang, and Quindao.
