Philippines High-resolution Satellite Imagery on Google Earth - June 2012

Here's an update to the post I made last year, showing the extent of high-resolution satellite imagery in Google Earth/Maps. Areas in red have high-res coverage.

I started work on this hoping to see some real progression over the past year, but it was actually a bit disappointing to find that there wasn't a whole lot of additional area that was covered. A lot of the updates recently are just newer satellite imagery for places that already had coverage. Anyway, most of the important stuff is covered, including the top 70 most populous cities in this country. That's every city with a population above 160,000.

Still not covered are the tourism hotspots of Boracay and Panglao. Something to hope for.
