Thread: Alternative to Google Earth For Scenery Reference?

    Default Alternative to Google Earth For Scenery Reference?

    Hi: I am interested in getting into scenery design and was wondering if there is a decent alternative to Google Earth for satellite photos...I have found lately that Google Earth has a lot of false tile overlays and can be quite annoying in blocking certain areas of the photos...Any advice would be appreciated!

    SBuilderX, v3.15 has numerous tile servers other than Google Earth if you involved in photo scenery. If you are just trying to view ground objects, Google Maps, or even Microsoft Bing are better alternatives.
