Google Earth and Google Maps share the same satellite image database and are updated together on the same cycle which is usually once or twice every month. Earlier the updates were every 60 days.

Bing Maps (formerly MS Virtual Earth) updates its maps roughly on a monthly basis. Other map services like Yahoo Maps should have a similar update schedule.

It takes months of post processing new imagery before they go online so updates don't happen faster.

Updates are announced to several Google Earth blogs. Google has also created a notification service from users can be e-mail notification when a particular area has been updated. See related links section for these URLs.

In 2006 Google Maps was updated to use the same satellite image database as Google Earth. Before that Google had to update and process imagery for both Google Earth and Google Maps where the maps where often out of sync with each other. Now Google updates its central map & imagery database and the updates are made available to both Google Earth and Google Maps at once. The time between getting imagery from satellite and seeing it on Google Maps is far from real-time. Once the imagery is taken by satellite, it takes time to process the data by a commercial provider like GeoEye before it is available to Google and other customers. Google will do additional processing to convert imagery into the format and coordinate system of its internal databases. This is one reason you normally won't find any imagery younger than about 6 months. For these reasons, the Google map & imagery database is updated once or twice a month.
