Google Earth Hua Hin updated

Post by wpcoe » Fri May 27, 2016 1:53 am

Maybe this is old news, but I just noticed that the Google Earth aerial images for Hua Hin, at least for central Hua Hin, have been updated with 2-5-2016 (which I think is in USA date format, meaning 05-Feb-2016?) images.

Also quite a few side sois which previously didn't have Street View images now do, dated 11-2015.

Right. I noticed a few months ago that there are now Street View images most roads in and around Hua Hin and Cha Am.

Here's a zoomed in version that gives you a better idea of coverage.

Google Maps will now help you find your parked car

I've thought hard as to when in my life I would have ever needed this and the only thing that came to mind is long term parking in a big airport lot after being gone a week or more.

I guess there are other uses depending upon how much you drink. :shock: :laugh: Pete :cheers:

The only interesting part about Street View to me is that I can be seen driving up our Soi behind the Street View car - just before I'm abducted by aliens.

Wiped out area on Google Maps.

Post by huahin4ever » Tue May 09, 2017 4:19 am

Came across a wiped/white out area on Google Maps. What in the world are they trying to hide here???

You can fill in the blank with the Maps app on Android. :)

Nothing blanked out on my map. Even names your blob as PP Villa.

Yes very sinister. Big Boy you are looking on 'Google Earth' which does show the building roof, the blanking out of the roof is on 'Google Maps".

Sure you can alter maps on your PC for your own use, but this is on the internet where you can add items like businesses etc., but would imagine very difficult to mask out whole areas of the map.

But it's not blanked out on Google maps Android app. You'd think they'd be using the same map.

It was blanked out on google maps until I zoomed in on my iphone and then became clear but did appear to be from a slightly different aspect and the red/orange colouration to the right of the blanked out bit was not there. Was there possibly a dire there recently which the satellite managed to catch?

Just had a look. 1. There's​ no blanking at all (at least in that position) with the Android app. 2. The Android app uses the same imagery as Google Earth as in BB's pic. 3. The imagery used in the Maps web site isn't the same as with Android and earth.

^^ Apart from the blanking, positions of vehicles are different.
