Google Satellite View Improves our view of Ancient Troy

Last year I noted that Google had inserted a new photo of the northern part of the plain of Troy into its display of the area  This update cut across the mound in front of Hisarlik, leaving its northern half differently colored from its southern half.  

That update has been followed by another that replaces the photo representing the southern half of the mound, so that most of the plain is now represented by the newer exposure. This seems like an improvement to me.  

The image below is from last year.  Google inserted a new image of the northern part of the plain that was more green and gold colored than the older images, which are of a more more brownish reddish hue to the south, and more yellow to the west.  

The image below shows the recent update at Google Satellite View.  Google has extended then newer, more green and gold images both south and west.  We can now see the Aegean coast much more clearly.  The upper plain and Hisarlik remain in the older, more reddish brown hue.  

Below is the most recent Google image of the tell and Hisarlik.  

Below is the most recent Google image of the structure in the marsh.
