Does anyone have any idea when these things are updated/if there's a schedule for updates floating around on the web somewhere? I want to do something like when the firefox corn field team all laid down in a field (I assume that's what happened; I haven't found that specific image, but a friend told me about it), and formed the logo strictly for the Google Earth image. I'm trying to do something on a less grand scale, but I still need to know, in general, when the satellites might be overhead taking a picture so that I can prepare. I know that my area should be updated soon (if I catch it in time, and it hasn't updated already), but I can't seem to find when. Anyone have a place that might help? Google has not yielded much to my efforts so far...

I don't think there is a set schedule. Don't think they own any satellites, rather they pay someone else for the satellite imagery.

They're not updated nearly enough; my home city has been showing a three-year-old, snow-draped visage for... well, three years, I suppose.

Where I live, Googe still shows unpaved dirt roads where my father's company paved them 6 years ago. Tends to make me think that my little corner of the world isn't very important.

Well, dang... I suppose we can just go ahead and start putting "'09" up there every now and again, and then just hope nobody catches it... that's a bothersome issue.

Yeah, its pretty out of date, and it is done by another company like E said. My dad's old business van can still be seen at our house, and thats been sold for about three years now.
