2017 and 2018 Imagery Packages

The packages that are named "XYZ_2017_torrent" and "XYZ_2018_torrent" are the most recent updates and will supersede all previous packages once complete.  Details on the updated packages are below:

Imagery:

  • Updated imagery dated 2017 and 2018 from NAIP (public domain from USDA Farm Service Agency)
  • Zoom Level 18 near ICAO airports, Zoom Level 17 near other airports, and Zoom Level 16 everywhere else (using Automated Zoom Levels code by Artesim)
  • Extended water masks (including inland waterways) provides textured water along the shorelines of lakes, rivers and oceans.
  • Improved blending between states so there is smooth transition from one state to another.
  • ZL 14 imagery from Sentinel 2 project used to fill gaps along border with Mexico and a few military bases. Sentinel-2 cloudless - https://s2maps.eu by EOX IT Services GmbH (Contains modified Copernicus Sentinel data 2017 & 2018)

Elevation Data:

  • Based on 1/3 arc-second (about 10 meter spacing) DEM from USGS (most accurate data available for US)
  • Sloped runways with airport smoothing
  • Primary road smoothing
  • Curve Tolerance 0.5 near airports and coasts, and 1.5 everywhere else.
  • Triangle count limited to 2,000,000 to help provide good frame rates everywhere

3D Autogen and road networks

  • Default Xplane 11 layer enabled by default. 
  • HD Mesh Version 3 (for XP10) and HD Mesh Version 4 (for XP11) also included in each package (with permission from alpilotX).

Is California out yet?

Oh boy, Forkboy, Mister X Global, ORBX - who would have thought we'd have so many good alternatives by the end of 2019.
