v4.8 - new Elevation/Landsat server
« on: August 14, 2013, 08:09:16 PM »

new Landsat, new elevation data

As posted in the announcements forum, our trusty OnEarth server ceased giving out Landsat and Elevation tiles in the last week.  Version 4.8 replaces OnEarth with a different NASA server, and there are some improvements!  First, elevation data is global -- before TopoFusion had no elevation data in extreme latitudes (60*+).  3D in Alaska!  Second, the Landsat imagery is higher quality, better true color, and still covers the whole world.  This is definitely an improvement for non-US users.

We also added the Juicy Trails tileset, which is a very nice rendering of OSM street, topo and (most importantly) trail data.  See for more info, but this is a very nice tileset to have available in TF.  Please consider adding trails to the OSM database (which will then be reflected on Juicy Trails, too).

We had some other small fixes, but needed to push this new version with the server change out ASAP.  Please let us know of and issues or feedback you have.
