Lahore, Faisalabad among others added to Google Earth

June 14th, 2006

A major upgrade of data to vast areas of Pakistan seems to be in the works by Google for Google Earth. Major cities included in the recent update include most notably Lahore and the Eastern part of Faisalabad. The resolution for these areas is apparently similar, if not on par with that of Karachi and Islamabad. The inclusion of Lahore and Faisalabad completes the top cosmopolitan cities of Pakistan with Karachi and Islamabad already been covered. For people interested in real estate in these major cities this update is greately helpful.

Other areas at first seem to be picked at random but everything seems to fall in place when one notices that most of the mountainous regions of Balochistan are also included in the update. Jacobabad, Sukkur, Rohri, Rahim yar Khan, Okara, Gujranwala are some of the other cities included too.

I have confirmed this but you may have to install the beta version of Google Earth to be able to view these places. I may be wrong. If you are able to view these places with the older version, please let me know.
