You are lucky then. Just the other day Saint John & area got updated with
stuff from late 2012. its great that they are getting around to updating it
but the imagery is more oblique than vertical making it very difficult to
trace. As well they are really low quality compared to their predecessors.
The new ones are faded out where the old ones were sharp and colourful.
These look like an instagrammer got at them!
