This is just a small screenshot impression of Forkboy2 ortho photo Grand Canyon HD. There’s of course much more to see, and a lot to download and a lot of time needed to convert the JPG files into DDS files.
Long story short; it was worth the time and waiting as you can see for yourself. Just to give you the right feeling; these screenshots are a combination of the packages Arizona and Arizona – Grand Canyon HD as well as the belonging overlay files.
According to Forkboy2 “This project provides high quality orthophoto scenery for X-Plane that can be easily shared among the community. For now, I’m working on the United States; however, if you know of a good WMS or Tile server containing public domain imagery from other countries, post a comment and I will take a look. Each orthophoto package will cover a large region that may include multiple states, or a portion of a large state.”
