You can now choose from several background layers in Potlatch.
Go to the options window (the little "tick" near the bottom left), and
you'll see that the pop-up menu which used to offer only 'Yahoo' and
'None' now offers:
OpenAerialMap is likely to be particularly useful. Not just because
it's a great project in itself, but also because it uses the same
low-res Landsat imagery as Yahoo - but enlarges it when you zoom in.
So if you want to trace over enlarged Landsat, use this to replace the
old Flash Player zoom.
(If anyone else has spherical Mercator GMaps-like tilesets that might
work as a background image, let me know.)
Thanks to Christopher and Jon for configuring their servers (OAM/tah
and tile respectively) so Potlatch can do this.
