There are definitely some updates to UK imagery as I can now see some of the streets and roads from my home town that weren't there before.

One of the places the Google Maps trike has visited is Malham Tarn, following a paved walking track. The route starts here, so I guess the photo is showing the rental van used to transport the trike:

http://maps.google.com/maps/mpl?moduleurl=http:%2F%2Fwww.svmapplets.com%2Fsv%2Fnationaltrust%2Findex.php%3FmarkerId%3D10988&ie=UTF8&layer=c&cbll=54.065947,-2.15804&cbp=12,133.85,,0,8.62&ll=54.066006,-2.158159&spn=0,359.991192&z=17&panoid=OTRUYoEcgr63XNc5Jsu31Q

If you follow the route for a while, you get to a place where there is no feature on the map at all, just solid green, because the trike's path is not on the map.

Here's a nice shot where the street trike cyclist was holding his hand up to push a branch out of the way:

"James Xuan [PersonRank 10]

just out of respect for this blog/forum. some folks might take offense, and i really didnt want to use real swear words either.

kind of frustrating seeing all these updates , including satellite imagery, and Ireland has barely budged from coverage over 2 or more years ago.
and google have a hq in Dublin.

Don't worry about other people, if they want to offended by something that's their problem, unless you're being deliberately mean to someone of course
