Finding images for your Digital Map
Search Google for images, as it has a feature to help you easily find images legally available for your use
Search for your location. At the top of the results page, select images
Before doing anything else:
Click on Tools -- a menu of options will appear
Click on Usage Rights -- another menu will appear
Select Creative Commons Licenses -- the page will reload
Now proceed with selecting images, being sure to confirm they are in fact available to use!
Note: Some images have multiple licensing options -- just be sure to use the license with the fewest restrictions! Also, if the image is noted as being in the "Public Domain," one can use it without attribution or linking to a license.
