The Solar API provides solar data for hundreds of millions of buildings
across the world. Imagery quality can be
HIGH: Solar data was based on high-resolution (e.g., 10cm) DSM data, typically from low-altitude aerial imagery.
MEDIUM: Solar data was based on medium-resolution (e.g., 25cm) DSM data, typically from high-altitude aerial imagery.
LOW: Solar data was based on low-resolution (e.g., 50cm or worse) DSM data, typically from satellite imagery.
The Google Maps Platform team is constantly working to improve coverage for our
API services. The map below shows where
MEDIUM quality solar data
is available. It does not show where
LOW quality solar data is available.
