High Resolution Sat image site

Post  MS on Sun Jan 02, 2011 1:52 am

Thought this site might be of interest for those using Google Earth but want something with higher resolution.
It only covers some gold areas so far but may expand in the future and is well worth a look.

G'day MS,

Actually these pic's are taken by aircraft and stitched together...Cool stuff for sure - If you look at Vic - Ballarat/Bendigo/Creswick are nice and green compared to the earlier release

Yes looks like your right Ararat
I only just found this site and thought it was satellite imagery, anyway it should be very usefull , it covers some of the areas I detect and is heaps better than the google earth that I have been using and the data is very currant , I like to search out diggings and this site make that so much easier.
One thing on the down side is my house clearly shows up some building work I just finished 4 weeks ago and oops I didn't get council approval for and thought what the heck who would ever know but I guess times have changed and privacy is a thing of the past.

Hi Ararat
No I only just found this site the other day, but I have been using Google Earth for several years now and have found new diggings that way and is has helped my nugget tally.
Also it gives you a better understanding of the lay of the land and work areas between diggings.

Mark,

Its a good tool for looking at the Goldfields - Nearmap is much better. Put your GPS in your pocket when you go for a walk. You can then upload the data to Google Earth.

Just abit of fun...

Regards
Paul

You will find that the resolution for inland Australia particularly country Western Australia is very poor on Nearmap & outdated compared to Google Earth.
The pro edition of Google Earth (if you're willing to pay the fees) is very good for low altitude good definition.
That's what the real estate agents, some mining companies & local councils use.

Cheers

A land owner in the SE of SA was caught illegaly clearing land by the council using sat imaging. He was charged and went to court and lost the case.
