    Sparta Complex Not On Google Earth Yet

    How far behind are the satelite images from Google Earth? I checked the Sparta complex today and it is not there yet. It is really cool to view various gun clubs and see the place from the air and the clubs surroundings.

    Some of Google Earth is at least five to six years old. It has taken that long to map the earth by space cameras in orbit.

    I say five years old or old because my house roof has not been that dark colored shingles for the last six years.

    According to Google the Grand is still in Vandalia.

    I've noticed.....some area are really blured. Hopefully the Sparta area will get an update soon.....It's cool that I can tell what year the image of my farm was shot ('05) as I can see where I parked my pivot and combine.

    The potential is something else....

    We are going to Rochester Brooks (Rush, NY) this weekend to shoot a Sporting clays tournament.

    A Microsoft Virtual Earth shot of the grounds.

    Google and other mapping programs still show some vehicles at my house that I got rid of three to four years ago.
