I'm developing a product for offline use in Brazil in rural areas where there is no Internet connection. I'm searching for a free imagery source which can be used offline in a commercial product.

ESRI and mapQuestOpen are free but their agreements only allow online use.

Is there any free or open offline satellite/aerial imagery for commercial use?

    What resolution do you need? Is Landsat 8 too coarse? – DMusketeer Sep 17 '15 at 13:38
  • 8 is good enough. But 10 will be great. for some Brazilian regions. – Daniel Santos Sep 17 '15 at 14:00

    you can download Landsat8 in bundles from libra.developmentseed.org (check cloud levels over latest images) license is CCv3.0 creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0 – Mapperz Sep 17 '15 at 15:12
  • Landsat 8 = 30m resolution I believe. – CSB Sep 17 '15 at 15:14

    @Martin I would bet that GMapCatcher violates the terms of use for many of the APIs it supports. Even if you're a paying customer to some, their terms may disallow compiling caches to be distributed as well. – Branco Sep 21 '15 at 12:53

The best option for a world map free software for me was NASA blue marble. http://visibleearth.nasa.gov/view_cat.php?categoryID=1484.
