I just downloaded and pulled up my property.
The pics were at least 3 years old as they did not
show the building next to me that was built about
3 years ago.

That's odd norm - even on the last version the shot's of my house were from early last spring (no leaves)
I can tell because my old van is out front where I had it parked for sale and my truck was in the drive.

I actually remember seeing them doing the mapping. For several days I saw a plane flying straight
lines west to east coming by about every 15 minutes at a set altitude.

It was low enough that I could see it was a wing over and had something mounted un the struts
under each wing - both sides. I remember commenting to my neighbor that it looked like they were doing aerial mapping.

I used to have a house mate that was a pilot and while he was in school he worked for an aerial photography
company that did mapping. I flew along many times and even ran the 9" Wilde belly camera a few times : -)

My place in Boulder was taken about 4 years ago.

Very cool. Except when I plug in my address, it points out a house two down from mine. Of course that may come in handy if I ever get on anyone's hit list.

I am in the North Dallas area. I just checked some other
close by sites and verified at least 3 years old.

Just what I needed. Something else to play with.
