Google Begins Selling its Aerial Imagery

 shared the news on the Google Enterprise Blog

Today, we’re launching Google Maps for Business imagery, offering businesses the chance to purchase and use Google Earth imagery for the first time. This gives them access to high-resolution aerial imagery covering the continental U.S. And it will help customers like government agencies get the imagery they need without collecting their own aerial photography.

Access? Via Google Maps Engine via services:
  • Include it with your Google Maps v3 JavaScript API web application
  • View it on a desktop GIS system via WMS
  • Overlay it directly within Google Earth
  • View it on native mobile applications and mobile websites.

Limitations: US only; aerialonly; no satellite imagery. Fees vary by organization. Gory details.
