Thread: Increased Resolution

  1. #1

    Default Increased Resolution

    Can someone help me understand what the benefit is of an overlay? I downloaded one yesterday and discovered that in spite of changing the color scheme to look like it was high res, the visual information in the view was the same resolution! Am I missing something?
    On a related note, I am desperately seeking a high resolution image of a volcano in Mexico called Iztaccihuatl. Any help would be appreciated!
    thanks in advance

    Hey John!

    Chances are when the overlay was submitted that area was lower resolution, google updates its imagery every so often and it remders a lot of our placemarks useless (planes, boats, some overlays and animals mostly) If you could tell me the name of the file i'll move it to the outdated catagory

    As for Iztaccihuatl, I found a few images.. not great, but better than what you can see in GE..

    Hope this helps!

    Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl Volcanoes, Mexico (3D Overlay) is the filename. I dont think it is outdated because the original GE image is low res. I was just hoping that GE would update the file to be high res so I could see the trails from the basecamp up through the intermediate points to the summit!
    thanks for the great pics!
