Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Is it possible to use the USGS High Resolution Orthoimagery as a backgroud imagery in any of the editors? I could not find any USGS layer in iD and in JOSM there only is USGS Large Scale Imagery. I even tried to plug-in the USGS WMS from the wiki page as custim iD layer but it is not working. I am specifically interested in the very high resolution imagery (like 0.075m/0.25ft per pixel).

Please stop spamming this site with repeated request on the same topic USGS imagery has been discussed on the talk-us mailing list please have a look at the archives.

The talk-us list seems to have very little info about High Resolution Orthoimagery with the most recent post being almost 3 years old... Also, it is strange you consider my 2 posts about satellite imagery as spamming, I havent really been posting here for months literally...

There have been extensive discussions about Orthoimagery on talk-us in the past 3 months.
