Gibson Sceneries for Flight Simulator are resampled from 15m Landsat 8 Satellite Imagery produced by Earthstar Geographics http://www.terracolor.net/about_nextgen.html
The same Imagery is used in various Commercial and Military Simulators.
The goal of Gibson Sceneries is to cover large areas of real scenery at economical prices for the flight simulator enthusiast or professional whether it be for simulating fast Tactical Jet Fighters, Military Transport flights, Commuter and Domestic Airline flights or General Aviation Aircraft flying at medium to high altitudes.
The scenery is perfect for enroute flight simulation. Take-off from a detailed airport, climb and fly en-route over "real" world scenery then descend into one of your other detailed airports. Airports are not included. The scenery is not suited for low level VFR flights in slow aircraft, although the scenery is acceptable in low and fast Tactical Fighter aircraft.
The scenery adds to the realism of simulated flight whether it be for recreating historical missions, commercial airline flights, military training or general aviation interest.
Shallow coastal water imagery is blended with the simulated water to give a natural look to the coastlines.
No night lighting is included.
