Information about the NY Statewide Digital Orthoimagery Program

Viewing Orthoimagery

There are many ways to view the program's orthoimagery. Perhaps the most direct is to use the interactive Discover GIS application at orthos.dhses.ny.gov. This application also allows you to download the imagery you're viewing in case you want to use it in other software.

Web services are also available for use in GIS software or map applications.  (Check out our ShareGIS page if you're unfamiliar with data web services.)

You can also download imagery through a table based presentation.

Statewide Status Overview

The New York Statewide Digital Orthoimagery Program has been producing orthoimagery since 2000. High-resolution orthoimagery is available statewide for viewing and downloading. The program's goal is to continue obtaining imagery for the entire State on a 4 to 5 year cycle (Note: no orthoimagery was produced in 2019.)

Next Flight

At the end of each Summer, detailed planning for the next orthoimagery update begins. The plan incorporates information such as the status of the current update, the age of orthoimagery in different areas, and funding. Once a plan has been approved, outreach to the relevant counties begins and the new project area is released. The map below shows the planned Spring 2024 orthoimagery update areas.
