Hi

Can somebody tell me if it's possible to adjust google earth so that it is more recent. Basically I have it, but it's showing satellite pictures that I no to be about 5 years old (buildings that are here now arent on google earth)

cheers

I've also wondered but I don't think so. I'm not sure if it's any more recent but try going onto maps.google.com and selecting the satellite option. Again I don't know if it's the same picture or not but it's worth a try! It probably is though

Check for updates? Otherwise no, you just have to wait until Google update their own image database. It's the same with Google Maps - a lot of it is out of date.

Check the exact same location on google maps. It may be that your Google Earth cache is old, or that new satellite photos are not available.

Remember, at high resolutions (where you can see cars), images are taken by a plane with a camera. This costs more than a simple satellite image.

Google Earth is not a real time software, neither is it updated every day.

try http://maps.live.com
It depends on the area but sometimes it has better, newer images than Google, plus it also has a really cool oblique view of some areas.
