Google Earth imagery in Raseborg

The new Google Earth imagery of large areas of Raseborg, Finland is from July 10th 2010 and of a higher resolution than before. Unfortunately it is a little misty due to thin clouds, but quite useful still. The best thing with it is that it is properly georeferenced, which means that a coordinate sits in the picture where it should, not 40 meters (!) to the east as it used to and as it still does in many places in Southern Finland since the last update a few years ago.
The roads in Google Earth/Maps are a little roughly drawn, but they are, and have always been, placed much more correctly than the old imagery which meant that you could see the error in the background map easily.

Here is a screenshot of a GPS-track that I collected today, overlayed on Google Maps (left, with the old imagery) and Google Earth (right, with the new). See how nicely the track fits with the road in Google Earth!
