  1. Google is definitely miles ahead when it comes to photogrammetry. In Google Earth even my hometown is 3d and so are 100s or 1000s of other smaller and middle sized towns in Europe. I‘m sure the sim‘s going to look great, also in non-photogrammetry areas. Nonetheless, it would be great it they caught up on photogrammetry cities.
  2. Yes, you have to upload it on a platform such as igmur first. Then you can use the button „insert image from url“.
  3. Some are driving correctly, others not. Not only on the roundabout, also on other multi-lane streets. Atm they seem to pick the shortest route. I'm sure they'll fix it.
  4. In the feature discovery series preview video (1st scene) they showed some yellowish lights among orange ones. But yes, I‘d like so see some more night shots too.
  5. From Asobo’s perspective, would prioritizing ATC mean deprioritizing VR and vice versa or would the development of the two features have to be done by different programmers anyway, I mean, would the one really channel resources away from the other? Is it really an either or question? Or only in this forum? Just thinking...
  6. It's Sant Antoni de Portmany, Ibiza.

  8. They said they have 460 photogrammetric cities. On the list in Earth View there are only 228. Where are the rest? Strangely, Hamburg and Marseille are photogrammetric but not on the list in Earth View (I could swear they were there last time I checked).
  9. This is a list from Earth View: Australia: Canberra Darwin Gold Coast Hobart Newcastle Wollongong Belgium: Brussels Canada: Calgary Edmonton Hamilton London Montreal Ottawa Quebec Toronto Vancouver Victoria Winnipeg Denmark: Copenhagen France: Aix-en-Provence Bordeaux Lille Marseille Montpellier Rennes Rouen Strasbourg Germany: Aachen Augsburg Berlin Braunschweig Bremen Dresden Duisburg Halle Hamburg Karlsruhe Kiel Leipzig Magdeburg Mannheim Mönchengladbach Munich Münster Nuremberg Italy: Bari Bologna Catania Florence Milan Naples Palermo Rome Venice Verona Spain: Alicante Barcelona Córdoba Madrid Marbella Murcia Pamplona Seville Valencia Vigo Switzerland: Zürich UK: Portsmouth Southampton USA: Birmingham AL Mobile AL Montgomery AL Little Rock AR Anthem AZ Carefree AZ Phoenix AZ San Tan Valley AZ Tempe AZ Tuscon AZ Anaheim CA Bakersfield CA Desert Hot Springs CA Foster City CA Fremont CA Fresno CA Glendale CA Hollywood CA Long Beach CA Los Angeles CA Modesto CA Oxnard CA Palm Springs CA Richmond CA Sacramento River CA San Bernardina CA San Diego CA San Francisco CA San José CA Santa Ana CA Santa Barbara CA Santa Clarita CA Santa Cruz CA Santa Monica CA Sacramento CA Simi Valley CA Stockton CA Temecula CA Yucaipa CA Boulder CO Colorado Springs CO Denver CO Bridgeport CT Stamford CT Dover DE Wilmington DE Brandon FL Clermont FL Daytona Beach FL Flagler Beach FL Fort Lauderdale FL Dort Myers FL Gainesville FL Gulf Breeze FL Immokalee FL Jacksonville FL Key West FL Lakeland FL Leesburg FL Marco Island FL Miami FL Ocala FL Orlando FL Sarasota FL Sebring FL Tallahassee FL Tampa FL Universal Studios FL Venice FL Walt Disney World Resort FL Atlanta GA Augusta GA Columbus GA Marietta GA Des Moines IA Champaign IL Chicago IL Springfield IL Indianapolis IN Topeka KS Louisville KY Baton Rouge LA New Orleans LA Shreveport LA Boston MA Springfield MA Worcester MA Baltimore MD Augusta ME Portland ME Ann Arbor MI Detroit MI Minneapolis MN Jefferson City MO Kansas City MO Saint Louis MO Springfield MO Gulfport MS Jackson MS Durham NC Greensboro NC Bismarck ND Lincoln NE Omaha NE Concord NH Liberty Island Newark NJ Toms River NJ Trenton NJ Albuquerque NM Bernalillo County NM Las Cruces NM Santa Fe NM Carson City NV Las Vegas NV Reno NV New York City NY Niagara Falls NY Syracuse NY Cincinnati OH Cleveland OH Columbus OH Toledo OH Oklahoma City OK Tulsa OK Beaverton OR Portland OR Abington PA Harrisburg PA Norristown PA Philadelphia PA Pittsburgh PA Providence RI Charleston SC Columbia SC Greenville SC Pierre SD Memphis TN Nashville TN Austin TX Brownsville TX Corpus Christi TX El Paso TX Fort Worth TX Galveston TX Houston TX Laredo TX Longview TX Lubbock TX San Antonio TX Salt Lake City UT Richmond VA Everett WA Seattle WA Tacoma WA Green Bay WI Madison WI Milwaukee WI Cheyenne WY Portland ME Dallas and Washington DC are missing.
  10. I am not surprised. What I meant who does the schedule to transform some imagery into 3d city set ? I asked on the Bing map developer forum if they have a schedule for upcoming photogrammetric cities and they told me that they don‘t have such a thing (at least not official), as it depends on their suppliers, i.e. the ones who take the imagery. They also said that such imagery was coming in „all the time“, which I interpret as a way of saying „we‘re working on it.“ From that I take it that it‘s Bing maps who‘s in charge of the 3d cities. That‘s all I know.
  11. One of the FS devs said in the interview that as Bing get new satellite imagery or new 3d data via their pipeline it “just shows up” in their sim (around 15:00). Sounds like an automatic process to me, but I'm no expert. What their commercial interests are with respect to photogrammetry is a bit of a mystery to me as well. There might be answers on their blog (https://blogs.bing.com/maps/)
  12. I see a problem here as well. This would only be possible if Bing had a sort of long-term roadmap showing the devs exactly when they planned to cover what area, which I doubt they have – at least they told me that they didn’t have such a schedule.
