Hi Joe,

Maybe Nearmaps can help? Not sure if they cover the cape though. Also they used to be free but now not so apparently.

Cheers,

Val, Nearmap only covered urban areas. And as you say, it is not free any longer, in fact it is hugely expensive even for corporations.

Hi

NearMap now requires full on registration + a fee for air photo downloads. It is no longer a viable option for the average punter (plus I don't think they covered CY anyway).

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

..It covers some non-urban (rural) areas...well at least in the SW of WA.

thanks for that, it is awsome, i found the first pic of Doomadgee Roadhouse i have seen since we have been here ...
But .... the spot i am looking at up at the Cape, would you guess, it is covered in cloud, i am actually trying to get some pics of the BP Servo at Bamaga but not having much luck ...
I may just have to wait until we get there eh ...
Thanks heaps though as i have found some other stuff of interest using it....
Cheers
Joe
