I also thought about Alaska but i was trying to give Microsoft the
benefit of the doubt here and not make the assumption that any quality
issues in Alaska would allow conclusions for the rest of the US.
Alaska is not only very different in geography, it is also much more
difficult with images (no NAIP images, no full HR coverage in any of
the common image layers).
For Alaska is is also highly significant what coordinate system
Microsoft did the processing in. If they used Mercator and did not
take into account the scale variation this is very likely to be falling
onto their feet obviously.
Even for just CONUS you by the way have a scale factor variation of
about 1.35 which could already cause problems when not compensated for.
But now i am drifting off-topic here myself... ;-)
