I would like to suggest the inclusion of this service, which is available in OSM, for example, and was previously known as DigitalGlobe.

Hi, Petr.


I don't know exactly the direct link to the map service, but the website is this:

https://www.digitalglobe.com/

which is the same as this one:

https://www.maxar.com/


It's one of the best aerial footage to use in OSM mapping, so it must be ok to use it in Locus, also.

I investigated a bit, and I don't know if this is possible.I was told that they only concede their service freely to OSM, I don't know if that's true...

Anyway, I found this:https://mapsapidocs.digitalglobe.com/docs/welcome-to-maps-api

Ahh thank you. I probably skip the last sentence that Maxar was DigitalGlobe. Yes, you're right the DigitalGlobe satelite maps are available via MapBox service (that's charged). As I know it's free only for OSM project. We already discussed soem MapBox services in our team but there was some limitation due to MaxBox SDK. However it seems that DigitalGlobe/Maxar will prepare own map service independent on MapBox that could be interesting for us. It's definitely charged service but I'll try to find out more.

Thanks for idea
