    Bing vs GE photo scenery FSET

    Post by G-GMDH on Wed May 16, 2018 10:11 am

    Doing some experimentation with FSET its rather disappointing to find that Bing satellite images are not as good as a few years ago, however GE are ahead of the game with current satellite images at far better quality. This example of my local aero club near Perugia. Both pictures taken at -1 resolution using FSET.



    You can see that the Bing image is out of focus and years old as it doesn't show the new hangers. However the GE image is very much clearer and in focus and is up to date with the extra hangers completed around 12 months ago.
