Updated Aerial Imagery of Universal Orlando (Sept. 2016)

 On September 19, 2016, the great NearMap site was updated to show a current aerial view of some of the major cities in the United States, including Orlando.

Thanks to this update, we are able to get an up-close look at some of the areas that are currently under construction around Central Florida’s theme parks. As you will see, the progress that has been done in some locations is nothing short of amazing (this update only includes the Universal Orlando Resort). Enjoy!
