    No, there won't. You simply can't make up information like that. There
    Let me rephrase. The publicly available satellite photos will have the
    detail to begin with.

    Drinking does not help thinking.

    What if the answer was philosophical?

    What, like "Maybe you can exit, let's ponder for a moment"......?

    Exactly.
    You could waste a lot of computer time pondering the capacity for a
    white pixel to become a No Exit sign in context with its environment.
    So rather than using interpolation to fill in the missing pixels, we can
    look at extrapolation to come up with possibilities for the missing pixels.

    Interpolation = making stuff up to fit between two data points that you
    do have.

    Extrapolation = making stuff up to fit beyond the data you do have.

    In both cases, it's still making stuff up!

    <LOL> Love it.

    Yes, a white (or black, or whatever) pixel is exactly that, no more no less.

  8. My boss has a brother in the GIS game. Google earth is very
    impressive, but i can assure you that there is some products out there
    that are even better. I wonder if you pay for the google stuff if it
    is much better.

    How does it rate against NASA World Wind? I'm west of Penrith NSW and can
    only get grainy street detail on version 1.3
