Making Napier Green Again!

Sometimes using the latest and highest quality images aren’t the best thing to do. Check out the current imagery for Napier, for example. It is at a resolution of .3M and taken around 2015, but you’ll see that it appears to be in a serious drought (I think most aerial photography is taken during summer).

Here’s a look at Napier in the current release:

That looks like it could be from the Persian Gulf, and here’s what it will look like in the next release:

This is older imagery, from about 2011, but i think it’s much more representative of the area. What do you think?
