Hi Stefan, 

We are of course Swisstopo customers. But their newest images in our
area are from 2013 ;-( 

Our agricultural department is looking for newer aerial images/satellite
images from 2015 or 2016. They'd like a spatial resolution of 1m or even
smaller - if possible. 

The Pleiades satellite seems to provide fairly up-to-date and high-res

Does someone know if MapBox or PlanetLabs provide a web service that can
be legally consumed within QGIS? It would have the advantage that they
have seamless coverage at farily high resolutions. 

I'll do more research.
