"To celebrate the sunny days of summer (in the northern hemisphere at least), we're unveiling new satellite imagery for all Google mapping products today," posted Google Earth Engine's Tech Lead Matt Hancher.

The removal of clouds paved the way for Google to enhance images that were not under high-resolution. 

According to Google, the search-engine company has more updates in store for their navigation products.

"We're proud of the progress we have made, but there is always room to keep improving," added Hancher. "For example, although we have tried to minimize the impact of the stripe artifacts in the Landsat 7 images, they are still visible in some areas. There is more good news though: the new Landsat 8 satellite, launched earlier this year, promises to capture even more beautiful and up-to-date imagery in the months and years ahead."
