High Resolution Orthophotography is color aerial photography typically collected every 2 or 3 years in the spring or fall for select areas in Utah. The resolution is 1 foot or better with a horizontal positional accuracy of +- 75cm for 2006 and 2009 and +- 37.5cm for 2012 imagery. The 2003 Urban Area Orthoimagery (UAO) is considered part of the HRO collection. Currently there is HRO imagery from 2003, 2006, 2009 and 2012.

The resolution is usually 1 meter with a horizontal positional accuracy of 5 meters. In addition to the 3-band Red Green Blue (RGB) color imagery, there is a color-infrared dataset from 2006, and a 3-band and 4-band dataset from 2009. The 2011 dataset is 4-band for the TIFF images and 3-band for the county moasics. The 2014 dataset is 3-band with separate single band image tiles for the 4th band for the TIFF images, the county moasics are 3-band. Currently there is NAIP imagery from 2003, 2004, 2006, 2009, 2011, 2014, and 2016.
