Salmiya now on Google Maps

Posted by Mark

Maps.Google.com recently got updated with new high resolution images and Kuwait gained from it. For example Salmiya no longer is a blur on the map, the images are pretty good quality. Also I found a military base which was previously also blurred out. Check it out.

Marina Mall
Fanar Complex
American University of Kuwait (still being built in this picture)
Shaab Park
American International School

    Wonder why it took so long for them to catalogue those areas!

  5. TweeZ says:

    wow, that’s a really old pic of AUK. The parking lot is not even built yet and the Arts and Sciences building is not there. Oh yeah, the new mall building site across from AUK , what else, is not there even.
    I think this AUK’s campus is very small. AIS is bigger!

    obviously this thing could never be real time, but it would be nice if it kept a bit up to date on all regions. googles maps is so awesome.

    Tweez: The picture of AUK was before it actually even went under construction in 2003! So it’s a REALLY old picture!

  20. Zorbon says:

    Has anyone seen any alumni website for AIS? Whoever is taking care of their official website is not giving it much attention.

  21. Mark says:
