High-res Maps of Areas Besides Boston

Hello, I'm a new user of osgEarth and having trouble with some of the imagery maps.

Specifically, I see the line that loads the imagery data in tests/boston.earth (which says http://readymap.org/readymap/tiles/1.0.0/22/) and I'm having trouble figuring out how to display high res maps of, for example, Pittsburgh, which looks blurry when I scroll to it in osgearth_viewer. I've contacted Pelican and Googled/played around for several hours on my own with no luck.

I've looked at http://readymap.org/readymap/tiles/1.0.0/22/ but I don't understand the XML data at that URL. Is 22 a tile number? If so, how are the tiles numbered? Unable to find support or documentation on this and feeling quite lost. Appreciate your help.

Re: High-res Maps of Areas Besides Boston

I would take a look at hires-inset test here:

That is a quick way to load a local geotiffs.  The example you mentioned is a link to our server which has some imagery, but it is mainly a resource for developers.

Another quick high resolution imagery example which might have your area in high resolution:

Look up National Map and you will see various methods to access or download data.

Re: High-res Maps of Areas Besides Boston

Ah perfect, thank you! I was able to find high-res maps of my area on USGS and overlay them on the map using https://github.com/gwaldron/osgearth/blob/master/tests/hires-inset.earth
