Chris asks…

Is there a proven method to capture a picture off of YouTube or Google maps?

Every once in awhile when I am watching a video on YouTube during the video I would really like to capture a scene. When I am visiting Google Maps and see a certain place where I grew up and want to capture the moment, is there a proven way to do it and save the pic as a jpeg just for personal use?

Linda asks…

How long does it take for Google Maps to upload new Street View?

In September, the google maps street view car drove down my street. i want to know how long it takes for them to upload the updated street view? thanks

Administrator answers:

If the car actually captured images from your street then it’s usually up in a couple of weeks. They have a system where it maps the image to the roads automatically. My street was done within 2 weeks. The car may not have been capturing images from your street, it may have been passing. If it did capture images, but there was an issue with the images it captured they may have to do it again.

If there is already an image of your street in Google street view it’s unlikely to be updated unless it needs to be.

how often are the satellite pictures on google maps updated?

Just wondering, how often are the satellite pictures on google maps updated? because I wonder if something my friend and i put on this one street (a trail of tape) is still there. it shows it in the picture. so how often are they updated?

Administrator answers:

They’re updated nearly all the time, but it takes a few years for Google to get round everywhere, so it could be 2-3 years before your area is updated.
