Satellite Imagery

Question

Has anyone here worked with satellite imagery in commercial projects? I know the big boys like Google and Bing have really strict copyrights, and I am also aware of Open Street Map (doesn't have the detail I need). Are there any other options or has anyone gotten approval from Google or similar? I have a project that would certainly benefit from it, however I won't use anything I shouldn't. Any insight would be great as this isn't the first time I have ran into this problem and would love to find a solution.

DEM Earth is what everyone uses for creating geo based on real world terrain refs.

 

I think the suite can auto-load open source (free) imagery as well from a list of 22 sources, or use any paid maps you provide it with from elsewhere if those are not hi-res enough. I don't have much need to create these myself, so hopefully someone can jump in and advise you of places to legally source the really hi-detail imagery.

  • Thanks CBR! I should have mentioned I am aware of DEM earth and while it is way more than my current needs, its implementation of imagery from several different sources looks really handy, provided I could use them without attribution. It seems most sources want attribution directly on an image which is not something a client usually wants.
