It’s nearing on two months since the last version of our layer was published, and on that occasion we hinted that we were working on moving to a “live” layer. Having a live layer means that we will be able to make any updates and new entries to the database public at any time – so if you added your project today, you wouldn’t have to wait for a few weeks to see it appear on Google Earth, but would see it the very next day.
We are now getting much closer to having that layer. We anticipate that the process will take a couple of weeks to complete still, but we can scarcely wait to show you the new map! We’ve done our best to improve content where you’ve told us to, and the layer is much better off for it – thank you! Please keep sending in suggestions, comments, corrections and of course: content!
We don’t want to give too much away just yet, but at a minimum you can expect much improved content for southern and east Africa, and a substantial number of new protected areas for central and west Africa.
More news soon!
