Google Maps now hi-res in Waterloo

September 13, 2007 Tags: Internet

For the longest time, Google Maps’ super-high-resolution images were only available in large city areas, like New York, Toronto, etc. I noticed recently, however, that Kitchener-Waterloo has it now.

I can actually see my car parked at my building. I can also tell that it was taken before May (when the large tree at the bottom right was taken down by a storm) in the summer (all the trees are full and green) and that it was early morning (from the shadows).

I wonder if this has anything to do with Google opening up a larger office in Waterloo soon.
