What can I do with Timeviews images?
Unlike other imagery imported with Plex.Earth, Timeviews images are for view-only purposes and are not permanently saved. In the future users will be able to order such imagery for printing, distribution and creation of derivative work.
How can I compare Timeviews with Google Earth imagery?
The easiest way to do so is to select the imagery imported from Google Earth and toggle between showing and hiding it:
You can also preview any Timeviews image in Google Earth by clicking on the associated button:
Some of the images are completely empty, white or of subpar quality.
Some datasets might indeed contain suboptimal data. You can report such incidents by choosing to preview these problematic images in Google Earth (see above) and sending the resulting KML file to email@example.com. We will soon also be implementing an automatic reporting mechanism for such occurrences.

No imagery is available for specific locations.
Check again at a later date, datasets are constantly added. As the service progresses we plan to provide more comprehensive coverage of the globe as well as more frequent updates.
