    The pictures in google earth are over three years old. Google maps uses the same pictures as google earth, however, even though it looks like a great tool, many countries feel offended by making such a tool public, which allows every tom, dick and harry to sneak into their countires top defence and science lab. This is the reason why google map doesn't have latest images.

    the maps that you see aren't a live feed from the satellites they update when new pictures are taken but as you may realize it is quite hard to have a constant update of the entire world
