Updated satellite imagery on zoom.earth

Google Earth hasn't been updated for Halifax in a while but there's some satellite imagery from 2018 available on zoom.earth:

https://zoom.earth/#view=44.644244,-63.579435,17z

Maybe this means that 2019 stuff will be up soon?

It's surprising to me how little space is taken up by the stands at the Wanderer Grounds, and that's seating for around 6,000 people. Not much would have to change to get 20,000 seats in there.

Good find! Some changes I noticed:
  • LeMarchant school rebuild
  • giant new parking lot near BIO that is very visible from the Mackay
  • rebuild of SMU arena
  • deforesting around the 102/103 interchange reconstruction
  • huge expansion of Bayers Lake, where the new outpatient clinic is unfortunately set to be built

Google Earth has new imagery from September 14. You can even see the collapsed crane!

Select View->Historical Imagery. The new set isn't the default as it is of inferior quality.
