A satellite view of what’s new in Fresno

Two weeks ago, Google refreshed their satellite imagery of the Fresno region with pictures taken on August 26, 2012, replacing what was seen on April 25, 2011.

Here’s a brief tour of the more significant changes in that year and a half. Some good, some bad. There’s a good amount of positive changes downtown, but many not so good changes on the urban edge.

I’m providing a link to the map, if you want to explore the area on your own, and also when relevant, a post I may have written on the subject. Click to read more!

I found a news article from last year that listed all the new bike lanes.

I’ve gone ahead and added them via map maker, so hopefully they’re online for everyone by tomorrow.

It should be interesting to see the “explosion” of bike lanes in downtown.

Of course, the real change came last summer, when a combination of road diets and simple re-striping added them all.
