Satellite Imagery - Sentinel 2 Data and The Caribbean

  • I good chance is that only one has been added for Haiti. Check next door on the East end of the island in the Dominican Republic for more choices. 8o

    I already did. None in the Dominican Republic nor in Cuba while your image above shows plenty of them in the Domincan Repulic?

  • Hmmm. Don't know. You are clicking on the Countries? Using the World Map, when you hover over the various islands, how many airports does it show for Cuba (3), Dom. Republic (11), Bahamas (18) etc. in the large black box with white text.

  • Thanks, Ray. I must have bookmarked an outdated FSCloudport link. Just opened it from a Google search (and updated the bookmark) and now all airports are there.


    Sometimes it's a good idea to ask a friend.:)

  • Tried it yesterday. Expectedly, it doesn't look great close-up around an airport, however, at 6000 ft or above it starts to get really convincing and looking good. In any case, it would be a big improvement over default ground imagery.


    Thanks for providing and kind regards, Michael

    Actually it's a great improvement for what I call "en-route" scenery, even for VFR GA.


    Say you have a nice HR photoscenery for Martinique and Guadeloupe and want to fly from one to the other.


    Just midway you have Dominica, which like all of Antilles is featured in IPACS default scenery as an ugly patch of ultra low res satellite pictures scattered with flattened clouds wide in the sea... (cf. Vogel's pictures above, seen from 5'000 ft it looks even worse)

    Total immersion killer.


    En-route scenery provides a very consistent Dominica for such a flight, as long as you don't aim to go sightseeing from too close.



    I initially created an en-route scenery in 2m/pixel out of Virtual Earth orthos providing harmonized (though quite dull) colours for the complete Petites Antilles, cleaning flat clouds from the sea, and compiled down to Level 7 to prevent distant scenery from popping-up in such flights.


    However most islands still had clouds on theirs summits, and the low quality of sea picture forced me to paint over most shallow waters...


    This is for instance Dominica

    After a quick comparison with Vogel69's latest work I can say despite the lower resolution his en-route scenery is way superior, with beautiful colors and much fewer clouds.


    Cheers
