Use the "birds eye" tool.  The maps on this site are more up to date than google's.


I just looked at this.  It's pretty cool - really gives you a perspective on how big some of the parks/cemeteries really are.  Also, I had to laugh at all the "bridges to nowhere" on the 480/75 exchange by Creighton.

Based on water resort construction, the area around my hotel looks to be from summer 2007.

Wow, whoever drew up crossroads really wasted their time.  There are so many more buildings that need to be on there, especially ones that we know will be around for quite a while.

Never mind, I see it.  Its a VERY UNREALISTIC building where the new hotel was going to be built on 12th street in the old market across from Ted and Wally's

I think Google needs to remove that

Oh give me a break, click on that one story building to read the description.

Omaha Old Market EZ Park
Modeled by: mmotaba
Description: Omaha's Old Market - EZ Park, Pay parking lot. Popularily asked about in real life due to the news coverage and nightly break-ins. This lot is fine during the day but high crime in the dark hours. (Resident, many time victim)

In a massive marketing venture, the revamped logo for KFC, featuring a trimmer-looking Colonel Sanders sporting a funky red apron, was launched in the Nevada desert near top-secret Area 51. The 87,500 square foot Colonel Sanders logo is off Rt. 375, "Extraterrestrial Highway", in Rachel, Nevada. The massive logo consisted of 54,000 Snap Lock Tiles, in five different colors. Work on the logo started in November 2006, but it was removed as of April 2007.

Ryan has now made First National center and the Double tree along with the Parking Structure nearby, he has made the Dale W. Clark Library, he has also made a renovated Crossroads that includes Macy's and Norstrom's along with a renovated Dillards and Sears. It also keeps the 6 story parking Garage attached to Dillard's and Nordstrom's, and thats all so far.

There are A LOT of new Streetview images of Omaha now on Google Maps and Google Earth. Eastern Omaha now as a larger representation of Streetview images than it did before. The images look like they came from summer of this year so not everything looks brown and dull like the previous images. Unfortuately, the front camera seemes to have had a smudge on it, so many of the images are a quarter blurry.

Council Bluffs now has a few images as well. Mostly just along Broadway though.

Those actually look decent.  I think someone posted that some hotels do their own.

Your right.  Its the library on three sides and the courthouse on the front!

Isn't there a way to report these?

Edit: Looking more Lied and St. Cecilias are also in now too.
