[National] Satellite images
« on: May 05, 2017, 10:41:30 AM »
Is there any free sites that offer up to date imagery ?

I use Google and Bing a fair bit but they really are not that up to date and a lot of their imagery is not all that great.

Is it better to subscribe to a site that keeps these up to date? if so, what are the costs that you guys are shelling out for such a service?

Are you talking about "regular" Goog maps with satellite images, or do you use Goog Earth (which requires software download & installation)?

I've been told it DOES make a difference.

It ALSO depends on what areas of your state you are looking at.

If the areas have military bases, power plants, dams etc....chances are the resolution isn't that great deliberately. After effect of 9/11. It wasn't just GPS that was "scaled back".

Interesting, never thought about it like that, I'm looking for maps like google etc... that keep them up to date, some areas I look at and the water looks like mud, green muck, some use a blue color to fill in the water areas and you can not see some details that others show like underwater humps close to the surface.

Yes, I do use google earth, it really hasn't made any real difference other than giving it more of an angled or fisheye kinda view, other than that it really doesn't enhance the view.

Unless you are in the NSA or have access to direct LandSat pics, I don't believe that those are available to the general public.

Underwater humps would be hit & miss because of water clarity / wave action.

Unless you have a mapchip for your fishfinder, I think the only options are a decent paper map and recent weather info
