Hi,

So far the highest res I have found has been here.

See the attached: at 150ft you can make out mooring lines which would be about an inch in dia.

Compare to boats across the river.

? Why Cambridge Mass?

? Have you found other spots with high res?

Thanks

Some things to say:
Even though the line are the size of one inch, they have a big contrast with the water background, that results in they appearing, cause the image resolution in not one inch, of course.

However, the imagery resolution, is very good, more than usual. For me, itīs the source of the imagery, appearing to be "Image MassGIS, Commonwealth of Massachusetts"

One solution: this imagery is probably aerial, not satellite. It's taken at one-half meter resolution, better than standard hi-res stuff from the "big 3" satellite imagery providers.
