Slow, very, very slow updates
“Okay. Guys we got the data in for the whole world! Now we can sit on our butts for years and years and never have to update it”...said the boss at google earth a decade ago.
I know it is free, but I have State Farm road atlases with the picture of a 1953 Buick on the cover that has more up to date maps than Google earth! Those were also free!
Their competition is buying new images like crazy and have current maps/terrain. Perhaps GE just isn’t in the game any more and are letting this program wither and die when more folks like me discover it is full of ancient artifacts instead of a current set of images. I’m in the hinterlands of the fly over in the USA...Denver Colorado. Doubt if the GE staff can spell it let alone find it on their own program.
The images I deal with are from three to seven YEARS old. Streets, many buildings, power lines, pipelines, public facilities have been built and in place for years in the suburban areas of this city.
There are much more current images in Tibet and South America,
Do not use this app if you are expecting to get current images. It is poor for that.
One feature that might be helpful is to have a streamlined method to report obsolete images, or offer the ability to purchase new images of specific areas if Google cannot afford to update your area of interest.
Timetravel feature needed + ocean map
I really like google Earth, but I would love to see a time travel feature where you can see what has changed over the decades: buildings, roads, environment, etc. Also, I think the next step should definitely be mapping the oceans; you will have work for centuries, honestly. Lastly, I want to see higher resolution imaging. One thing that I currently like is the 3D feature especially when you first tap it and the camera does a cyclical camera pan; that's awesome! Although, I would like this to be available from multiple zoom levels. Also, how about quick-zoom level buttons: 1x, 2, 5x, 10x or altitude ranges.
Google + Wikipedia would make a powerful resource for information ;)
Slow, outdated, and awful software
I used to love google earth about two years ago, but after a new update, the whole thing went down hill. First, the satellite view of some places, for example San Francisco, was out dated by at least three years. Second, the new up date doesn’t include Wikipedia shortcuts, or simple explanatory anymore. And, you can’t turn the stuff off the settings that you don’t want, like let’s say you only want road feature on, well tough luck be cause it doesn’t allow that. Lastly, if you scroll around eventually at least on my tablet, the app closes and shuts off for no reason. This app has so much potential and it’s a shame that it is like this. I hope google can fix there problems soon.
