Urban Planet Developement Maps

Recommended Posts


We really cant use the google maps thing for the Upstate until google gets higher resolution orthophotos for our area. We could do maps of Greer and Woodruff though, if you really want to.

Charleston, Myrtle Beach and the eastern half of Columbia are the only places in SC where we could do them with the high-res photos.

It is possible to work with the 30m stuff, but that is extremely difficult to do, even if you know the area.

For the time being these maps for any city in SC will have to be set up by Skyliner or myself. I would like to say that I could dedicate some time to make one of these for us, but I can't guarantee the time, so it would be a very sporatic development.

When I came accross them it was just a map not satalite imagery, a map is cool with me. But I understand that lack of time.

Well, we can do that too if you like. I was referring more to the hybrid maps that you can do with Google. I do want to do them at some point though. I'll try to work something out soon.

Google just hasn't worked out a deal to get them up there yet. Odds are that the counties don't want them up there because they likely make a good bit of revenue from selling the orthos themselves. Richland and Charleston have lower resolution images up than they offer at their GIS sites. It appears to me that the City of Greer and the Town of Woodruff provided the images that are up there now, since they are the focal points... sorta. Thats just speculation though. My first sentence is the most likely case.

I was talking to Greenville police officer, and he advised me that the rate of annexation for the city of Greenville is about to go way up. Right now, they're looking at Cherrydale and points north and west, and east of East North St/Howell Rd.

Great! Greenville might as well join the annexation bandwagon, since Columbia just annexed land with 2500-3000 residents, with the land being able to support an additional 1500.

Excellent for Greenville! I would really like to see them in with the big 3 of SC in terms of population as a city especially considering they are one of the big 3 anyway.
