What are good sources of Photo tiles?

Recommended Posts

I am relatively new to scenery design and have managed to get some nice photo scenery imported into FSX using SbuilderX. I have looked at Virtual Earth, Google Maps, and Yahoo Map photo tiles for various areas but was wondering if anyone could recommend any other free or inexpensive sources of photo tiles? I tend to prefer the colors and resolution on aerial photos as opposed to satellite images. It would also be nice to find a good source that is freely distributable as I would like to make some nice photo scenery of various areas in the US and distribute them on Avsim. I understand this is not legal with the providers I mentioned above. I looked at Terra Server but the images are in black and white and I would rather not have to paint every tile as my technical skills far exceed my artistic skills. There are some color aerial images on there but not in some of the areas I wanted to do. Also, the color images from that server have a USGS stamp on them.Thanks for the help.Ryan

Look into the USGS Seamless server. It has a ton of stuff, but it takes some effort to find it and then download within their bandwidth limitations.
