How about a complete redo of rural America?  Much of it hasn't been done since 2010 or earlier, and even some roads that were done back then have been removed.  I find it hard to believe that Google doesn't have the money to do this.  Yes, it would be time-consuming and expensive.

Probably a low cost-benefit ratio. There's not that much demand for most places outside of cities, natural wonders, and a few odd places.

South Korea still has large unphotographed areas. Most minor cities and major freeways are not photographed entirely. What could it be?

I would assume due to national security laws. South Korea's maps have certain regulations that must be met. That's why Google Maps didn't use a vector-based map in South Korea for a good while.

But of course this is just speculation, I have no good answer.

The new Route 1 freeway in Prince Edward Island has not yet been photographed. And there are large gaps in western Iceland, compared to other parts of the country.
