Background

At the beginning of 2015, a coalition of state, regional, and local government agencies purchased a license to Google’s high resolution (6 inch pixels) aerial photography. Read the original post about the acquisition. The license will allow Utah’s cities, counties, special districts, state agencies, K12/Higher ed, and tribes to use this imagery in web and desktop mapping applications as a streaming web service or, where needed, on premise from downloaded local files. Also included is use by contractors and formal partners of the immediate licensees.

The imagery web services will be hosted in Google’s cloud and delivered via WMS and WTMS Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards via AGRC’s cloud-based server Discover. The original .jp2 imagery tiles can be downloaded or obtainable from AGRC who has a master set of the raw imagery files.
