Google Maps Image Variation

Some may not know this, but as you zoom in with Google Maps, the imagery that’s used may change, as a result on occasion some strange things may happen. The following is a great example.

On Lybia’s shoreline (with the Mediterranean sea), you can tell there’s either some seasonal flooding, or some big tide difference. Open that link (as is), and zoom in 1 level. You’ll be able to see the difference. Still curious if it’s flooding or a tide thing.

Edit [9/18/06]: I should note at some point this will likely prove false, as Google occasionally updates the images.

    Hmm, that’s weird. I wonder what hapened there. You can find some pretty cool stuff on Google Maps.

    I do agree with all of the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for starters. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post!!
