Aerial maps for Europe


I noted that the aerial maps for Europe (in my case Munich) are of quite low quality (resolution). Is there a way to deal with this problem?

Thanks for any advice you may have.


The terrain and aerial layers we use are currently provided by the US Geological Survey. This likely explains the lack of detail/availability in your area and elsewhere. At the moment, we don't have a way of providing alternative tile servers in the Map component, but maybe there is an extension (or author willing to create one) that would allow for this.

is what OpenStreetMap provides

why OSM cannot provide high resolution satellite maps.

I am not sure that I understand. The aerial maps available at are easily good enough for what I need. Can these be somehow used?


Not with App Inventor's Map tool.
