No more mapping

Posted by Unusual User Name on 30 January 2014 in English (English)

I've stopped mapping simply because the very deepest layer of Bing imagery is no longer available for Brisbane.

Sure, there's other stuff I could be doing, mapping-wise, but that's not what I'm interested in at the moment.

You still have z19 which is pretty good (and the best I have here after I also lost the higher res zooms). Hopefully you'll check at intervals to see if an updated higher res layer becomes available (my theory is that Bing is expiring imagery over a certain age, as it seems to be missing from their site too, at least in the two or three cases I've checked previously - the highest resolution here was older than the z19 stuff).

Man I know, this is extremely annoying, I sort of give up tracing buildings now too... Have you seen any explanation or news anywhere about that issue? Or any discussion about another imagery supplier with better res available? EdLoach's explanation is the best I have seen so far...
