Only some parts are Hi Res. Have a look for brighter "blocks" which are the better quality parts. Plymouth is about the closest to you.

I think I get you, so West London is just a random grey splodge with very little definition.

There are some areas that do look like they shot them on a slightly cloudy day but the let them through anyway. Like Hartlepool, Ribnetters and West Londoners beware, if you put ashore there on a dark and stormy night any members of the party that may look vaguely like a monkey have been known to face the gallows.

Admittedly it was a french monkey so it had the disadvantage of not understanding the questions.

Not quite!!! These are special sections in connection with people like National Geographic.

Not all these images are satellite generated - the better ones are aerial photos.

As to commercial - they are often better than the gov ones - the US often buys time on Ikonos V to do their work for them.

Remember there are limits to what can be seen due to the atmosphere. Cloud - dust - smoke - fog - heat haze etc etc all limit resolution and there are no current ways around that!!!

You've spoilt it now! I was going to say that the Land Rover was mine and I got my mate at NASA to take a pic for me
