Does Google Earth update its pictures every day?
Google Earth does not have the capability to update their pictures every day. There is typically a one to two year lapse in updates to their site and the process is very costly and tedious. In order to update the photos they have to hire people with helicopters in every area they track to perform slow and low fly overs in a grid pattern using an exterior mounted video camera in order the update their site.
