I'm trying to put some hi resolution map overlays into Google Earth Software.
I'm trying to push this thing to the limit, using a very large file size. For some reason, the larger file size I use for my image overlays, the more distorted the quality becomes.
It seems that the software will take a large high quality image, and then reduce the quality until it fits a predetermined size, and then displays it on the map.
If I break up a large image into 2 smaller images, the quality is noticeably better. If I break a large image into 4 or 8 smaller images, the quality is better yet, starting to approach the original file. The problem is that I have to align all of these pieces on the map, and it's extremely time consuming.
The overlay size is covering about 50 miles × 50 miles, and I'd like to get bigger eventually. Can anyone tell me if there is a file size limit, or a better way to keep my quality high when I import hi res overlays?
Feel free to talk technical, I have a pretty good grasp on digital imagery. I also have a very great machine with 4 GB ram. I'm really hoping I can get this to work, it would be soooo sweet. Does the subscription package have better overlay support?
