I don't know if this is related, but today I noticed that for a particular English town, Papyrus was showing the same aerials that Google was. Either a) Papyrus has switch to using Google, or b) Bing are buying their aerials from the same source as Google.
After some digging, it seems that Bing
have the same aerials for this area. Papyrus and Cartouche also show these same images.
I checked a few other places around the UK, and found that Bing now shows updated aerials for the Ferrybridge junction
- this was mostly empty fields when I last looked at it. It's not completely up to date though, as it's still showing old aerials to the south and east. Looking at this point
you can see the new freeway coming down from the north, but disappearing below a certain point.
So... I think Bing have (partially) updated their images. Yay?
