Satellite images.

Does anybody know where i can get highly detailed satellite images? Higher than google. Google has this thing that you can pay $20 to get better quality, but to me that seems like a rip off. Anyone know any places to get better pictures? Thanks

. As others have mentioned, if you want higher resolution, aerial photographs are probably the way to go. . Where to get them? I'd try local timber companies, oil exploration companies, surveyors, surveying supply stores, &c. Look through the Yellow Pages. If you can get friendly with someone in the right department, you may be able to get "last year's" pics for free. . Don't know if they supply pics (probably do), but USGS.gov has detailed topos of most parts of the US, if a topo will fit your needs.
. Oh, yeah. Check with local professional photographers. If they took a shot of the desired area, they may sell you an "off-spec" print cheap. If nothing else, they should be able to point you to someone that knows where to get what you want.
. And any company that has to deal with rights-of-way (right-of-ways?) (eg, electric, water, cable, pipeline, &c) will probably have aerial photos. Ask the right person for for an obsolete (to them) print and you may be able to get it for free.

I need pictures of Iran. I highly doubt that PNM would have them.
. Then DoD might be the place to start.

. Who is PNM? Power of New Mexico?
