Try Mapquest.com and type in an address.When you get the map view, there is a tab that shows arial photos of the map location.If there is not a tab, then that means there is not an overhead view of that particular map location.Regards,Steve Dra

Alpha,This sounds fantastic. There was only one thing I missed with the passing of FS2000 - and that was the moving car lights on the roads. Do you expect this little add-on to have much of a performance hit?

Yes at the moment I am working on the Animation for roads so is not "3d"cars ,trucks and trains but from the air they should look real traffic moving along roads and traffic with lights for night .The only other way i tryed is Autogen traffic but this looks good on the ground but dooes not move and looks like big traffic jam :)Maby the giant traffic jam is more "real to life" :)Anniette xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Aniette,I'm a traffic engineer, and use aerial photos on a daily basis. Let me know what you need as far as size and resolution and what types of roads, and I'll get the pics for you. They are from lower level, very clear color aerials and should do the trick for you.MikeKOCFadrian.johansson@kimley-horn.com

The aerials are all from the US, Florida in particular. What types of roads do you want? How large should the section of road be (How long?), and what file format do you need (BMP, JPG). Below are some lower resolution examples of the aerials I work with.MikeKOCF

Hello Mike,Since you are being so generous, I wonder if I might trouble you for some help.I am presently working on replacement ground textures for parts of Florida, using U.S. Geological Survey images at 1 meter per pixel. Very nice, except that they are in black and white.

Would you by any chance have sample images from these areas that would give me an idea of the real colors? Thanks for your help.Best regards.Luis
