Anyone have the address of that site which had great colour satellite photos of the US? Not the MS terraserver site but I think it also had street maps etc.ThanksShez

Hello Shez,Do you by any chance mean Mapquest or Maps? These two sites do offer aerial images for some of the addresses that are covered, but not all. Some of them are color, but they mostly seem to be black and white.The images come from Globexplorer, but you may find that they are not always usable. In any case, I suspect that most of the pictures originally came from the U.S. Geological Survey, and can therefore be found, with greater clarity and resolution, at:http://mapping.usgs.gov/digitalbackyard/index.htmlwhere you can get a complete list of the distributors of the pictures.Or, if you insist:http://terraserver.homeadvisor.msn.com/default.aspwho is one of the distributors.Black and white - not what you seek. But, there should be some easy way to color them. I am working on a method at the moment, and if successful, shall post it.Best regards.Luis

Thanks Luis. Yes it was Mapquest I was looking for. You are right that not all of the maps are colour which is a shame.ThanksShez

I find that even the color photos have so much red and blue in them that they take as much work as the b/w ones.B
