Google Maps Update Impacts our View of Troy

Google has updated their satellite image of the northern part of the plain of Troy, but only the northern part.  The result is not so great if you are interested in studying the whole area.  

Above, a Google image from 2022.  Below, an image from 2020.  

Formerly one at least had a fairly unified view of the plain. There were several pictures linked, and they were not all taken at the same time and in the same light, but most of the plain was viewable in a single hue. 

Google Satellite View is now using the updated 2022 image, and shows a two-tone view of the northern part of the plain of Troy.  You can still see the more unified images among the historical images at Google Earth.
