The Tiles and the analysis currently update after two days although the data
is the later date, not the more useful earlier date. Someone else reported
seeing old tiles. Try clearing your cache and trying again. Do let us know
if it continues to be a problem. I hope we get time to get the date-stamping

That's also what I found. It was useful to spot the villages that had been
missed in the middle of a well-mapped area.
