Here is another one for you (www.dfwmaps.com). These are very high resolution color images, and may be worth a look. The 2001 aerial data has the road labels embedded in them, but you might want to look at 1999 data.Another option is to download Terraserver images and color them yourself. This is what I am currently doing.Cheers,Allen (live in DFW area)

check out http://jdmcox.com/you can download a neat utility call usaphotomap. It will access the images at terraserver, which are the main images I use. The utility makes it fast and does the compositing for you.B

what are you doing as far as photo terrain.Hi Jay,Right now I am kind of in the prototype stage with VTP polygons. I have managed to align the images nicely, and make good use of transparency. Unfortunately, I am not really happy with the blending of the airport images, with the surrounding standard landclass textures. I will continue to try some different methodologies until I get it right.I am currently using VTP Method 2 to draw my images. I may try using the images as custom landclass textures, to better blend them with the surrounding textures.Cheers,Allen
