I am trying to use Collect Earth for Land Cover survey, but the imagery from Google Earth is too old (5 years old for some places!). I do have the latest SPOT data(1.5-m pixel) from last year,about 300 tiles, to cover the whole province. Is there a better way for me to import all these tiles?

Dear Jinkai.

If you have the time the best would be to set up a cartographic server (like MapServer. GeoServer or Google Earth Enterprise), ingest the imagery into this server (pyramid it) and then use the imagery through the WMS capabilities of Google Earth (or the Google Earth Enterprise Client if using the GE Enterprise server)

Obviously this will take some time...

You can test the map servers using OSGeo Live virtual machine : https://live.osgeo.org/
