Google Earth is constantly obtaining new satellite images and updating their old ones. The Google Earth Blog stays on top of most these updates and has notified us of a recent update where Google has added more detailed imagery of Spain.
The Google Earth Blog reports the imagery update covers the eastern edge of Spain, including Barcelona. The update includes these towns in Spain: Valladolid, Leon, Burgos, Avila, Segovia, Salamanca, Andalucia, and Cataluña. Frank Taylor of the Google Earth Blog says that with one update comes others, and he is asking his readers to notify him if they notice any other updates.
