Sorry to disappoint, but wikimapia uses the Google Maps API and pulls its sat tiles from *.google.comI had to block access to *.google.com domains in Tileproxy to avoid potential legal trouble with Google.Christian

Just for the record:Google Maps and Google Earth are two different services (different images, different servers, slightly different coordinate system, Earth even uses encryption) - but have the same owner.Google Earth seems to get new imagery quicker sometimes.Christian
