Mapi imagery layer

Are we allowed to freely use this?

tms[17]:https://tiles{switch:1,2,3,4}.arcgis.com/tiles/NQHNcH6HFanEssSJ/arcgis/rest/services/%D7%90%D7%95%D7%A8%D7%AA%D7%95%D7%A4%D7%95%D7%98%D7%95_2015/MapServer/tile/{zoom}/{y}/{x}

It's 2015 and good resolution. Source: http://data-mapiil.opendata.arcgis.com/

Also, this raises the question of whether the new Bing layer is *Really* 2016. Despite the 2016 metadata, I can clearly see the Mapi layer is newer in some areas.

How can I view them directly on site?

Re: Mapi imagery layer

According to http://data-mapiil.opendata.arcgis.com, the data is licensed under https://data.gov.il/terms, which says:

אתה רשאי להעתיק את המידע, להפיץ אותו, להעמיד אותו לרשות לציבור, לשדר אותו, לבצע שינויים טכניים במידע וליצור ממנו יצירות נגזרות -- בכל מדיום או פורמט
אתה רשאי לעשות שימוש במידע באופן מסחרי ובאופן שאינו מסחרי

There are some additional restrictions that seem to be irrelevant for the orthophoto.

In addition, the details about אורתופוטו 2015 say:

Access and Use Constraints
No special restrictions or limitations on using the item’s content have been provided.

The orthophoto is accessible by scrolling down http://data-mapiil.opendata.arcgis.com/ and clicking תצלום אויר ארצי משנת 2015

As far as I could see, it is easier to see roads, tracks and buildings in Digital Globe imagery than in the MAPI orthophoto.
On the other hand, MAPI orthophoto is more up-to-date.

Re: Mapi imagery layer

zstadler, thanks for the explanation! Please note that Bing is more up to date compared to Digital Globe in Israel since recently. Apparently Mapi is more up to date than both. (My analyses is based on areas I am familiar with. I don't know if that's the case everywhere in israel).

Re: Mapi imagery layer

This MAPI imagery is exactly the same as the extremely high-res imagery in GovMap, except that the higher zoom levels were removed. I wonder if we can ask MAPI to also freely release the higher zoom levels, that would be an excellent upgrade.

Re: Mapi imagery layer

It seems that the site, and the imagery, are no longer available without login.

Re: Mapi imagery layer

That's unfortunate. Are logged in users allowed to use the data under the terms described hereinabove?

Re: Mapi imagery layer

Looks like the new MAPI imagery is finally on Govmap.gov.il.
Does the TMS URL still work? If so, what is the desired offset?

Re: Mapi imagery layer

AFAIK, all the contents at govmap.gov.il is copyrighted and technically inaccessible by standard tile clients.

The raw images are available though data.gov.il, with a permissive license. Creating a tiles out of them would require human effort and a tile-server host.

What is the name of the tiles in data.gov.il? And I see that there are other interesting data there like shops and restaurants in Ben Gurion Airport

Re: Mapi imagery layer

There are 79 items at data.gov.il: https://data.gov.il/dataset?q=תצלום

In case you want the information in JSON format: https://data.gov.il/api/action/package_search?q=תצלום&rows=100

Re: Mapi imagery layer

Can govmap be used within JOSM? I'm asking about both the legal and technical aspects.

Re: Mapi imagery layer

As far as I understand, the answer is no for both

Re: Mapi imagery layer

Is it likely that they will release the aerial imagery to the public domain? If yes how can we send such a request?

It could help a lot
