Where can I find free or (relatively)cheap satellite im...

Recommended Posts

To any knowledgeable person out there,I am trying to find free or cheap -- that is under USD$200 --satellite images of the Singapore. The images will be used in a scenery I am currently working on for FS2004. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.Regards,David

Hi David,What you are going to find is that you can get a lot for the money these days but full color, cloudless and high res of at least 4m/pix is going to cost $$$.I cant reccomend anyplace for Singapore as all the folks I have delt with save for Spot are local and only deal with the 50 US and Canada.What exactly are you looking for?

I am very new at scenery design and after having seen some great sceneries created using hi-resolution satellite photos I would like to use them as background for my scenery. Unfortunately most providers I have found charge at least $500. I was hoping there was a provider that had free or cheap hi-resolution images.Incidently, I have visited Rochester a number of times and can't wait to see your scenery project.Best regards,David

Hi David,I guess what you want to create will then be payware ?Years ago I had a Singapore scenery by, I think, Andras Kozma (sp?) and he was using some cheap image he obtainedfor about $50 as far as I remember from a message back thenon Compuserve's FLIGHTSIM forum. But then the sim had a lotlower resolution. He posted a top-down screenshot that showedpart of the scenery. I'll see whether I still have it in thearchives.Cheers,Siggy

I'll keep checking. Thanks.Regards,David

Hi David,That's very generous ! Try talking to Andras Kozma whodesigned the Singpore scenery for FS98. He had images,as far as I remember, that he bought for $50 (again, frommemory, I think he once posted a message on that on Compuserve).You find a possible e-mail address for him on the followingpage: http://www.scenery.org/members.htm (that address maynot be valid anymore, I used it in 1998 and it worked then).I really appreciate your effort of creating a freewareSingapore scenery and if I can help you in any way I will.Your CBD looks good, if it continues like this the final resultcould be outstanding !Cheers,Siggy
