Google Earth and Partners Imagery 2016 and following

A catch-all descriptor for locations derived from Google and partners imagery in the years following 2015.

Note: digitization of modern features (buildings, roads, etc) from Google Earth (or Map) imagery likely violates the source's terms of use. Use of Google Earth or Maps to navigate and find location coordinates of abstract or ancient places does not violate its terms of use.

The assertion of 5.0m positional accuracy is based upon editorial judgment and is offered in the absence of formal metadata from Google or its partners.
