Nice, I see that Finland now also has Traffic information and some cities in Canada to.

Several cities in the US now also have new high-resolution imagery.

Previously the images of cities in Europe were of much higher resolution than those in the US.

But now cities including San Francisco and Chicago have new images.

Some examples.

San Francisco, CA: maps.google.com/maps?f=q&s ...

Berkeley, CA: maps.google.com/maps?f=q&s ...

Seattle, WA: maps.google.com/maps?f=q&s ...

New York, NY: maps.google.com/maps?f=q&s ...

An example of the older low-quality imagery: maps.google.com/maps?f=q&s ...

interesting – as tom says above there are quite a few japanese islands covered (between japan and taiwan)

some these islands are very very small. fascinating stuff – i was barely aware of their existence.

I remember that Traffic information was added to Finnish cities earlier.

It appears that Street View for Finland is not live yet.
