New Google Earth Satellite Imagery for July 2007

11:15 pm PHT

Update, August 3. This Google Earth update can now also be seen in Google Maps as well. Check out my Vista Pinas article on the underground river as a way of announcing the update on that blog.

Almost two months after Google updated their satellite image data for Google Earth, they have again updated their data last July 26. If you’re a longtime reader of this blog, you would expect me to keep on top of these updates.  :)

Don’t expect much for this update though. Like last month, only one area in the Philippines gets new high-resolution satellite imagery and this is the northern end of the territory of Puerto Princesa City in Palawan in the vicinity of St. Paul Bay. This area covers the location of the famous Subterranean River National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Obviously, you can’t see the river in Google Earth, no matter how high the image resolution gets.  :D

If you’re interested to see other Filipino UNESCO Heritage Sites, we’ve featured a few of them at Vista Pinas, my second blog. There’s Vigan, Paoay Church (as one of the four UNESCO-designated Baroque Churches of the Philippines), and Tubbataha Reef.
