We are pleased to announce that the imagery collected in early 2017 for 26 counties in the Eastern Piedmont section of North Carolina is now available online from the NC OneMap Geospatial Portal. As in previous years, this imagery is available both as a web service and via download. The orthoimagery is true color imagery and has a pixel resolution of 6 inches. This means you can zoom in to a scale of about 1:575 before the imagery starts to lose clarity. In order to conserve disk space the raw imagery was compressed during processing so image analysis (using the actual pixel values) is discouraged.

Whether your tool of trade is AutoCAD, Carlson, Microstation, QGIS, or ArcGIS, our imagery web services make it a breeze to take advantage of online imagery without the hassle. Set up the connection to the web service and that's it! You now have access to the imagery each and every time you need it.

Downloading Imagery - Grab N' Go
Although there are many advantages to using the services (we encourage you to use this method whenever feasible), we realize that there are cases where you may prefer to download it. If this is the case then visit the "download imagery" page on the NC OneMap Geospatial Portal, or download an entire county as one MrSID file. Please keep in mind that we restrict you to about 72 square miles per download (80 tiles) due to bandwidth concerns. This area represents about half the size of major cities in North Carolina. If you need larger areas of imagery then you can contact us to arrange a data transfer (hint: you're going to need to send us a hard drive).
The 2017 imagery is produced as part of the ongoing NC Orthoimagery Program.
Final preparations are being made for imagery collection in early 2018 for the Northern Piedmont and Mountains section of North Carolina. As always, we welcome any comments you may have and are happy to answer any questions. Just shoot us an email.
