Dear Christiaan

Many thanks for this udpate on imagery, does Google makes this imagery available under the same agreement that ruled for the previous imagery shared by Google in January which was allowing work (geo features) deriving from tracing (digitizing) work done over imagery to be imported in the OSM database under its current data license scheme. Extremely grateful if you can clarify on this so that we can use it for further works in support of the current efforts happening in Haiti

Best regards
Nicolas

Dear Crisismappers,

I wanted to let you know that we have published updated imagery for Port au Prince and some other parts of Haiti in Google Earth, including images acquired on Jan 17, Feb 23, and Mar 9.  

The very high-resolution imagery acquired on Jan 25 is still the default imagery in Google Earth and Maps.  So to see the newer images, you will have to use the Historical Imagery tool, accessible through the clock button on the toolbar in Google Earth 5.0 and newer.  

For an overview of the imagery, and how to use the Historical Imagery tool, see this blog post: 

Thanks, 
-Christiaan
