How about you need a subscription to even get the viewer, so you can eliminate the watermarks and allow copying without that shitty pop-up on the screen?|

Sorry, I missed this.... If we stopped allowing people to use the viewer all together, wouldn't we still be handing business to competitors, if that is in fact what we're doing. On top of that, even if we did eliminate the free viewer, we wouldn't eliminate the watermarks entirely. Even as a subscriber, you still have to order imagery or download using your credits to get the watermarks removed. The amount of time energy and effort to put all of this imagery together is substantial, we aren't going to put the imagery up without having it watermarked. So if we did what you're suggesting, I think we'd be pushing away the business that is coming in from hobyists, and hostorians, aerial enthusiasts. We have a ton of users that just like to get on and look through old imagery, look at change in the land over time, and are just plain hisotry lovers. That's half of the fun of this website.
ccman51, As far as your frustration with the pop-up, what exactly are you referring to? Some of the subscriber pop-ups have the option to turn them off and stop returning. If there's something that's specifically bothering you, then maybe we can consider other options or a solution. I also wanted to make sure you're aware of the Jpeg downloads and pdf reports builders that you can use for creating a nice aerial report quickly all within our system? Since you are a subscriber, I wanted to make sure you're making use of your free downloads.
