It seems that the folks on the Google Earth team have been burning the midnight oil to get those data sets out for Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. Last week we posted a story about the missing data along with a request for the Google Earth team to update their maps. The team responded explaining that the data was never posted and promised to work to resolve the issue. It seems that they have now begun to make good on their promise as evidenced by the appearance of a handful of cities and towns throughout Georgia and it’s two neighbors. While it is a start we are eager to see what other information is made available in the coming days and weeks so that folks like my friend in Tbilisi can start using Google Earth to make a difference.
