Google Maps shows high resolution Aviva Stadium under construction

Google’s recent update of its Irish Google maps images, which we reported on yesterday contains high resolution images of the €410 million, 63,802 sq.m Aviva Stadium under construction. The stadium, which was built for between 2007 and 2010 can be seen in the early part of its construction – probably during the first six months of 2009, before the roof was added or pitch constructed (in November 2009).
