DigitalGlobe Platform

The Maps API offers:

Recent Imagery

A curated satellite imagery layer of the entire globe. More than 80% of the Earth’s landmass is covered with high-resolution (30 cm-60 cm) imagery, supplemented with cloud-free LandSat 8 as a backdrop.

Street Map

An accurate, seamless street reference map. Based on contributions from the OpenStreetMap community, this layer combines global coverage with essential “locals only” perspectives.

Terrain Map

A seamless, visually appealing terrain perspective of the planet. Shaded terrain with contours guide you through the landscape, and OpenStreetMap reference vectors provide complete locational context.

Prices start at $5/month and go up. (5,000 map views for $5.)

BTW, 30 cm is 11.811 inches, just a little less than a foot.

For planning constructive or disruptive activities, that should be sufficient precision.

I haven’t tried the service personally but the resolution of the imagery compels me to mention it.

Enjoy!
