The lake and golf course is still there on the image in AP. No sign of the new stadium?

Where do AP images come from and how often do they get updated?

It's just google's imagery - gets updated whenever they damn well feel like it. :)

tRicky - Landgate has some more up to date imagery under Gateway WA 2015 Mosaic, let me know if you want me to grab it.

The AP photo is about ten years old I imagine.

Juffy, what you sent is mostly fine although they hadn't yet built the Lion King building in that photo but it is just a massive block so I don't think anyone's going to notice or care. The car parks matched what I drew as an outline so I'll go with that. Probably get out there this weekend to check what I drew is correct and also explore the island to see what we can actually use (hopefully that gives Tash enough time).

The lake in the 'map' drop down box is more accurate than the one in the Google aerial photo! I should have ridden across it to freak Richard out.

Lion King building - you mean like this one in Hamburg?

I don't really know what the building is, whether it's a theatre and/or car park, but it has a big Lion King poster on the side.

Upon closer investigation I think the Lion King building is a multi-storey car park.
