Have you not read Trimbles statement earlier in this (and other) threads that:
- Their provision of Google images was part of the buyout agreement?
- Their access was for free? (i.e. it cost them nothing!)
- Google has deprecated access to much of what they'd been using - like terrain data?
- That continued access to high quality images likely violate Google's terms of service?
If you were in business, would you not substitute a different service when continuing with the formerly free service probably incurs significant cost (I know, that's my reading of Google's API pricing - and your opinion is different) that also likely violates Google's Terms of Service?
I would. And I would do the best I can to insure the substitute service comes as close as possible to the original service (or even exceeds it if possible) within the limits of affordability - as I believe Trimble is doing.
No need to reply as I'm done with listening to you. I'm going to mute this topic after I post this. Note this is not a flag - it won't affect you. It's simply my choice to bow out of this topic.
