Ever had the need to download satellite images to your personal desktop for use on special projects? It can be a time consuming and often tedious task trying locate these images and then sizing them to the needed image specifications. However, the Microsoft VirtualEarth Satellite Downloader 7.881 can help make all of that easier.
These downloaded satellite images can be saved to a disk. The maps can be downloaded and then either viewed on Satellite Viewer or put into a BMP map. It is fairly easy to get the latitude and longitude of the smaller images so that putting together the larger map is not that difficult either.
There is one limitation and that is that is that there is not a high precision download available. Also, you get a better zoom in level with the purchased version, with a zoom level of 19. The unregistered version only allows a zoom version of 13.
Lastly, this software program is only intended for personal use. It cannot be used for any commercial purposes. However, it is a fun program that can be used for art projects or a whole host of other learning opportunities.
