From space, Parkersburg is still a little fuzzy

April 28, 2008 - Art Smith
A few months ago I wrote a blog about how fuzzy the area was when viewed through images used by Google Earth and Google Maps.

With some areas of the country you can zoom in with the popular software  so tight that you feel like a peeping tom. 

Not so with the Mid-Ohio Valley. It was a blurry mess.

In the January blog I used Marietta as an example and displayed the blurry images of downtown that were generated by the program.

Since then, something has happen. I really doubt that Google pays any attention to what I write,  but the images of Marietta are now clear. In fact they are stunning. You can read MARIETTA on the football field.  You can see fences in yards. You can tell what color the cars on the roads are. You get the idea.

Parkersburg is still a fuzzy mess. So listen up Google Earth Image Replacement Guy, we are thankful that Marietta now has great photos, but can you give Parkersburg the same treatment?
