Maps imagery updates

See what 3D images are available

You can see buildings and cityscapes in 3D for some places in Google Maps and Earth. See where 3D imagery is available.

Follow satellite imagery updates

Google Maps uses the same satellite information as Google Earth. Most of the images are about 1 to 3 years old.

Right now you can't report satellite imagery or request updates. You can, however, use the Follow Your World tool to find out when new imagery is available. We strive to update our data regularly.
