    Nope, just posted the url above because many probably don't know what "GIS" is... I believe some IKONOS images are already publicly available through:
    http://geo-vlaanderen.gisvlaanderen.be/geo...anderen/IKONOS/

    Also interesting are the mid-scale color ortho's available on
    http://geo-vlaanderen.gisvlaanderen.be/geo...n/kleurenortho/

    These are free to browse for everyone.. but I don't know wether they could/may be used in WW. Also, they are only available between certain heights and a part of Flanders is not yet included.
    Probably sounds like way too much trouble

    Still their quality is pretty good. Also, there are different layers, including a street map.. Might be useful for people in the meanwhile..

    regards
    Ah yes I see. It looks like the data that has been proposed here before by Stephane when I'm right. Now I don't know whether this user has contacted this very organisation (GEO Vlaanderen) or another, but what I do know is that they wanted some kind of advertisements included.
    What you could do is to contact your government and ask them whether this or some other data could be used freely in World Wind. Until now we've seen that the developers don't want any advertisements in World Wind. Unfortunately the data on the websites mentioned above is not that easily to use in World Wind because they have included their copyrights in the image itself.

    Furthermore I don't know how Belgian authorities react on people who try to download entire datasets from their internetsites. I live in the Netherlands and I know that the Dutch law says that you may download everything from the internet you encounter, that only the one who provides the data is responsible for it. But I know that other countries (like France) have other rules about internet-related material. Anyhow it shouldn't be too difficult to download imagery from some sites (like the one you mentioned) and write a little program to process the images into the World Wind format.

      Hello the community,

      Now I have taken contact with this company, they are waiting for an answer. Unfortunately, the developpers don't seem to share the same feelings as the majority of the community (paying vs advertising).
      Anyway, we have to give an answer to their proposition.
      What's the next step?

          Sounds nice
          Please don't forget to post the outcome here as well, for I'm really interested how things work out. If this works out fine, I'd very much like to try the same thing for some interesting imagery for the Netherlands.

                Hi,

                Yes I know I already saw the link but the language used in these meetings is very hard to understand for foreigners (at least for me). It is very far from the academic english we are tought at school!
                And then a short summary concerning the problem discussed in this very thread would be welcome.

                Stephane

                  The basic summary of that bit was, if I remember, "not much"!

                  We need to work out how to make World Wind attractive to companies, and make it easier to integrate datasets into World Wind, I think.

                    I dont want to open a can of worms here, but our government has to have higher res pics of the rest of the world. thats how we found out the cubans had russian missles. maybe we could lobby to have some of this stuff declassified.

                      Sure. The National Archives in College Park has declassified imagery from the CORONA and Keyhole (KH-7 and KH-9) satellites. Now, to scan them...
