US lifts restrictions on more detailed satellite images
Sites like Google and Bing Maps will be able to use higher-quality satellite images, thanks to US government restrictions being lifted.
Companies had not been allowed to make use of images where features smaller than 50cm were visible.
But one imaging firm, Digital Globe, said it would be able to sell images that showed features as small as 31cm.
