Perhaps, you don't have the latest version. The image date is clearly shown on mine. I have version 5.1.3533.1731.

The data bar shows: Imagery date, location coordinates, terrain elevation and eye altitude.

I have exact same version and I see lat/long coords, elevation, and eye altitude. I don't see anything in the View menu or Tools/Options that would apply.

So what date do you show for Rio Verde?

Never mind, I see it. It doesn't display until you are zoomed in enough.

Thanks Rolly,

I wonder if there is an online map of Mexico showing the location of the ejido land? Or even state maps outlining ejido land.

Hello mensamia,

No, I don't believe there are such maps. Even INEGI does not usually show whether the land at a specific location is ejido or not. Or
at least I have not been able to determine without actually going there and asking. I, too, would be interested in such a map if anybody
knows of such.

Hasta luego. jerezano.

That's right, maps of ejidos are hard to find. If you find a map, it may not be up-to-date because many ejidos are selling off their land -- sometimes to private parties but more commonly to expanding cities. Also, ejidos are not always contiguous; they may be fractured into several tracks.

The only place where you can get reliable information is directly from the ejido. All ejidos will have an elected administrator, el presidente. The larger and more prosperous ones will have a formal office. In Lerdo, the ejido office has three full-time employees and the largest assembly space in downtown Lerdo.

Yes, most seem to have only the copyright date (both Google and whoever they purchased it from), but others will additionally have the actual year and month the photo was taken. There doesn't seem to be any particular reason for one or the other. The actual date is sometimes off to the left of the copyright date.

They wore ski jackets and bundled up in Dec when the temp dropped to a frigid 25 degrees c. to me, a canuck, it felt like a late june evening. I did lsten to them before I went and packed no shorts or flip flops and wish I had... all advice from now on will be taken with a big grain of Mexican salt

We went up to the obispado and the giant flag. You could see the haze and my eyes did sting- In July. Not so bad on the streets or at night though

The malls are the place to be in the summer, take in a movie, visit the art gallery and stroll the canal, visit macroplaza. If you are like me, you will swear you are the only gringo in the city! visit la huasteca, take a trip to Real de Catorce -

Thank you for the continued responses.

Is anyone at all familiar with the Apodaca area in Monterrey?
