Google Globally Updates Their Maps To High Resolution

Google is at it again and this time they are updating their Google Maps…GLOBALLY! Someone noticed that high resolution maps were now available for some places, like Egypt (Egyptian Museum in Cairo is pictured to the right). I noticed that here in Ames, Iowa they had updated the maps to high resolution a few weeks ago. However, this is the first time that I have heard of a Global update.

If you are looking for a fun way to view the maps then check out Wikimapia. This map service allows you to identify and mark places on the map so that other users can easily locate places later on.
