Interesting. When I call up this area in JOSM, or indeed using any
standard "Yahoo Map API" example, the image URLs that are retrieved look
That's the best zoom it gives you (z=1, smaller being better). So JOSM
Potlatch, which presumably uses a Flash API, the map tiles requested
look like this:
and have a better resolution - z=19, higher being better in this scheme.
The key to fixing this in JOSM would be finding a way to get the
manage to modify any of the examples on
to actually give you the high-res image then we could use that knowledge
to improve JOSM. (I'm cc'ing this to the JOSM-dev list.) - We are not
we cannot retrieve the tiles directly even if we knew how to.
