Large Scale Model - Using Google Earth/Maps

Hi Forum

I am trying to set a map of an area (multiple kms) for a background image but due to the scale it has very bad resolution.

I have inserted it as a tile to display in 3D (image below) and was wondering if there is a better way to get higher resolution images of large areas into Plant Simulation?

Hello Hermias,

you need to find a way to get a bitmap with more pixels.
Plant Simulation remain that resolution.

Maybe Google Maps support has a way to create larger-resolution images.

To my knowledge, there is a developer interface to Google Maps, say, for applications that want to integrate Google Maps in some way, so I would guess, there at least exists a way to export images from Google Maps in a user-defined manner with more possibilities to configure the output.
