Color Aerial vs USGS Imagery
« on: November 15, 2017, 02:52:52 PM »
The attachment shows a section of today's tile download. (Just NW of Mowry mine )
The current downloads look like the Color Aerial Tiles.
They do not look like the USGS Imagery.
Is the key "U" taking us to the Color Aerial Server?

Hi Roger,

No, they are two different imagery sources -- you can toggle between them with fresh tiles and verify that.  Unfortunately the USGS tiles are not as high resolution as they have been in the past (in some areas).   Still nice to have multiple imagery choices.
