Our group has a Desktop account and we are sometimes in areas where we must use SARTopo Desktop. Aerial imagery seems to be only available to the U.S.A., will aerial imagery be available again for Canada?

    Hi Harry,

    We are actually working on aerial imagery for Canada currently so we can provide something for offline access. For now the Google Satellite layer is probably your best bet for online use, knowing that we plan to offer more in the future.

    Hi Meghan,

    Thank you for the quick response! The Google Satellite layer would complete our needs.

    The only options we have when downloading the tiles are:
    * MapBuilder Topo
    * MapBuilder Overlay
    * Scanned 7.5'
    * 40' Contours

    Where would I find the Google Satellite layer?
    Best regards,

    The Google satellite layer is only available for online use due to licensing restrictions- I apologize if that wasn't clear in my previous response. We are working with a satellite provider to obtain that dataset so it can be available offline but at this time it is unavailable.
