AtomiumGoogle has updated imagery for Belgium, France, Portugal, and France to use CNES/Spot Image satellite imagery at 2.5 meter resolution imagery instead of the old Terrametrics/NASA 15 meter resolution base imagery. This means that the low resolution areas are 6X better resolution.

The details from Spot Image:

It covers France, Spain, Portugal and Belgium. It is made of imagery from our SPOT5 satellite : 2.5m in resolution. The images are selected from our existing catalog (most recent and cloudfree). They are then combined to make one single uniform image. To cover France, we need roughly 500 SPOT5 images which are of course taken at various date, sunlight, angles, etc…

There are also some new high resolution Digital Globe strips are in Belgium, mainly around Brussels.

And while you’re flying over Brussels, make sure to stop over at the Atomium.
