Can anyone tell me how I can get an up to date overhead image of a site in Auckland? Current image displayed is dated April 2019.

Find a company that specialises in aerial photography and pay them to take some up to date photos of the area.

I assume you have already checked Auckland Council GIS map? It can be a bit hit and miss - sometimes it is more up to date than Google, but sometimes it's behind. Either way it's worth checking if you have not already done so.

The views expressed by me are not necessarily those of my employer Chorus NZ Ltd

But seriously, I doubt you'll find later than April last year.

If using Google Earth, try turning 3D buildings off in settings/Map style as it may give you a newer image... worked for me :)

I'm not a complete idiot, I still have some parts missing.

Thanks for replys. I have learned that you can request from Google to refresh the map area you are interested in. Send them a screendump. But the wait may be long I suspect :-(
