Have fun flying over this area.
Now I could identify the tiles that pixelate the naval base Hohe Düne:
Unfortunately I am still missing a tile east of it, which I cannot find.
Is there a grid with all tile names? That would help me a lot and I could name tiles directly to you.
Bye, Michael (III)
Edit: the list of tiles has been increased from 2 to 4
Yes there is. I will forward it to you on IPACS.
I cannot upload a kmz file.
Thanks for the file Map.zip, with which I can identify the affected tiles.
unfortunately BING (version 2.0.0) pixelates the area of the airfield Rostock-Laage (ETNL), which is also used for military purposes.
I found out that these tiles are affected:
I have hidden the 6 affected BING tiles for testing purposes and instead removed the 6 tiles from the version 1.0.0 -- it works.
How can we achieve that airports that have been pixelated by BING can be replaced by other photo scenarios in the further creation of tiles? After all, airfields are a central point in the flight simulator.
I continued my search at the Baltic Sea coast and saw that there the German active military airfields
- Schleswig-Jagel (ETNS) and
- derision (ETNH)
The same problem also exists with other locations, e.g. naval bases
It would be nice if we could avoid the thwarts with a reasonable effort and legal templates.
Is there an easy way to get from geo-coordinates to the affected tiles?
You found a work around, good idea, that must of taken you ages to find the effected files?
Unfortunately both providers offer very poor quality images.
A long time ago I asked Nick Hod author of "AeroScenery" to add "ArcGIS" server to his software but it has never happened.
PS The only other thoughts I have is to make a higher definition say resolution 17 or 18 just for the effected airfields using the better quality images. What are your thoughts?
In general I find the highest possible (reasonable) resolution for airfields very good, because I got used to hide the "artificial runways and decals" whenever possible. Because I think the original just looks better.
