ORTHOIMAGERY

The Geolibrary’s orthoimagery acquisition program was initiated in 2012 as a three way partnership between counties, state, and federal agencies to acquire base level 24" resolution imagery for just $52.80 per square mile. Communities can participate in the statewide contract to purchase higher resolution imagery at signicicant savings without having to complete a complicated RFP process.
