Las Cruces, NM and Dothan, Alabama... I'd like to see how the developers made their decisions.

They didn't. Bing Maps made them.

Don't praise it until you've flown there.  Or just check it out on Bing maps.  Zoom in slowly until the color changes.

Those are the only cities they publish photogrammetry for on the Earth 3d Viewer. And that list hasn't been updated, as far as I can tell, since 2014. Apparently they (or their 3rd party partners) are creating more but the evidence for this seems a little thin.

Hard to believe my little community of Punta Gorda, Florida, which is just across the river from Port Charlotte made it on the list.  We 18,000 Floridians appreciate it and as I flew over my house this afternoon I saw my boat at the dock.

Just noticed that my two other "home towns" are on the list: Tacoma, WA (40-years there) and San Diego (10-years there) 

However, flying over Tacoma in a C 152 at 2,000' does not look so good to me

It's odd that all the Australian ones are sort of second-rank cities, not the big 1 million plus ones.

Not that I'm complaining - I live in Canberra and they've done an amazing job with  it.

Flew over Canberra the other day and they have done a great job indeed. Was able to easily navigate myself around the city using VFR. Will fly around the gong tonight. I have been there quite a lot so interested to see how that looks
