Yeah, I don't really like it as well. Going to Oeteldonk all the way from Zwolle is quite a ride indeed

If you're not satisfied with Google Earth, then try something different. Maybe you have high detail aerial imagery of Bulgaria available freely online on some government or other site.

At least for Slovenia we have aerial imagery from July 2006 for whole country and it is freely available for viewing on number of sites. Next aerial photo shooting of whole Slovenia will probably take place this summer.

Unfortunately I don´t know something different that could have very high resolutions. But I find it rediculous that they advertise and sell extraordinarily priced Pro versions altough even important big cities in Bulgaria, Romania etc aren´t covered at all. It´s unbelievable. and lately they began to use some medium resoluted pictures that are probably 20 squaremeters = 1 pixel or so which is really ******* dumb. I find people should not use google at all and Tv channels should all emidiatelly quit using the peace of shit until they finally covered at least important places with high resoluted pictures.

I imagine if Google had high-res images of these places they'd put them online, don't you? Why would they not display these areas if they had them? And if they DON'T have them it's likely because they're not available. Perhaps you should speak with someone in your national capitol about what high-res shots they have on file and why they've not released them to Google.

Oh, someone has to give them google, to relase them? I think google has to download the satelite pictures, to get them from Nasa etc, I am sure they have enough sources to get what they want. Do you think that Nasa and other companies havn´t scanned the whole planet yet? I am sure there is very high resolution imaginary but google hasn´t ordered it.

I can tell you here in the northeastern US the areas that have the best resolution are often a result of some state agency having these things on file. When you're on Google Earth and you go in close it will often tell you at the bottom of the screen who holds the copyrights to the pictures, etc. New Jersey, for example is all hi-rez compared with Pennsylvania where there are still some areas (State College) that are low-rez. I just have a hard time believing Google wouldn't want to put Romania in hi-rez if they had the photos on hand- it wouldn't be logical.

I think these satellite pictures are quite expensive. Put in a lot of bandwidth, and we may be blessed Google makes this available to us - for free.

Although I also hope more imagery will be added soon, especially from central/eastern Europe. But the Netherlands is also not very clear, while I know all of the country has been photographed from the air.

I wish they could take new pictures of Jelgava, because they are far to old from 2002!

Yeah, Abcoude as well. On GE they are still in the beginning stages of building the new 4-track railway between Amsterdam and Utrecht, while they finished it almost two years ago

Yeah and in Slovenia there are finished stretches of motorway displayed, but the pics show that the motorway is in construction or there are plains there.
