Aerial map type

The aerial map type consists of a combination of satellite and aerial imagery.

For a small zoom on global level (zoom 2-8), the satellite image from NASA Blue Marble Next Generation is used.

 

When zooming in outside of the territory of the Czech and Slovak Republic, a mosaic of Landsat 7 satellite imagery is used.

An orthophoto from an aerial photography is used on the territory of the Czech Republic and its border areas. The images are taken each year with a resolution of 10cm/pixel, comprising 1/3 of the area. The whole territory of the Czech Republic is thus updated every three years.

In addition to the current aerial images, it is also possible to view archived images that were taken in years 2013 and 2015 (Aerial Map '15'), 2010-2012 (Aerial Map '12'), 2004-2006 (Aerial Map '06') and 2001-2003 (Aerial Map '03').

An orthophoto from an aerial photography is also used on the territory of the Slovak Republic. The resolution of the pictures is 25cm/pixel, comprising 1/3 of the territory. The whole territory of Slovakia is thus updated every three years.
