How can our world get the grip on some satellite imagery though?

@sproid @bob
On the rare occasions when i *have* to use google maps, it is because I want to see the satellite imagery layer underneath the map.
Open Streetmap doesn't have the resources to acquire sat. imagery.
Google simply bought a sat. image company.

@gemlog
Is my understanding that OsmAnd app has a plug-in that you can pay a subscription for live maps including satellite view. Also the app Vespucci for editing openstreetmap have a satellite view in the settings with Bing aerial imagery and USGS Imagery.

I kept researching and found out that there's many more aerial/satellite options in the app.

But if you or anyone is only using app for there is also satellite view. Go to Configure map > select overlay or underlay > download or select Microsoft Earth.
