Here’s your satellite

Google Earth’s satellite imagery for Toronto is years out of date – empty fields show where new warehouses now stand.

If there were really satellites taking pictures 24/7, the site would be continuously updated.

No, the real reason is it’s simply photo mapping by plane like these, which only take footage every few years.

A plane scheduled for a short flight in Ontario this week took a winding route that kept it in the air for more than four hours. CTV News Toronto looked into the flight after a post gained attention on Reddit, questioning if anyone else in Toronto “was being kept awake at 3 a.m.” by the aircraft’s noise Wednesday. The Piper PA-31 aircraft was flying at around 1,150 feet for the duration of its flight, flight tracking website Flight Radar 24 shows.
