Wot iz zis?

Mimi, me I am not an expert on mapping – and a lot has happened in this field since when I first blogged about Google Earth/Maps in 2005.

Just a few minutes ago I found the following images within Google Maps and took some screenshots because I just can’t figure out why there are these detailed shots of the scenery (south of Embu in Kenya). Maybe you know? Is this some sort of highway to-be-built?

FireShot capture #072 - 'Embu, Eastern, Kenia - Google Maps' - maps google de

FireShot capture #073 - 'Embu, Eastern, Kenia - Google Maps' - maps google de

FireShot capture #074 - 'Embu, Eastern, Kenia - Google Maps' - maps google de

Heck, you can even count the plants. This is an amazingly detailed view, imo (2m vs. 5m in e.g. Frankfurt).
