Google maps offers high-resolution aerial images from satellites. These images are not updated very often. Since they are not updated frequently, newer features of the Earth's surface are not shown as often as they appear. Certain parts of the Earth are not able to be viewed. They are not able to be viewed due to risks of terrorism and for government protection.
