Yellowknife NWT vs Global Earth

Recommended Posts

Just for interest I thought I'd post views of Yellowknife (CYZF) in Canada's North West Territories comparing Google Earth and a top-down view from Prepar3d with Global Base, Global Vector and OpenLC North America active. It's a tough area to render as the city sits on outcroppings of Canadian Shield rock and lots of small lakes within the city. If I recall correctly in FS9, FSX and I believe P3D also the airport was placed in a bowl that had to be flattened with adjusted scenery elevations. Buffalo Airways Virtual once offered such a correction for download to registered users.


The similarities are remarkable. Way to go Orbx!!

Interesting to compare the two views here.

Just goes to show what an amazing job ORBX has done.

I  still scratch my head when I make a rare foray onto other forums and see ORBX getting a panning from a few people.

It is sure hard top please some people.
