GIS Data


VBMP Orthoimagery is displayed in true color (RED, GREEN, BLUE). The spatial reference is WGS 1984 Web Mercator (Auxiliary Sphere). The imagery is tiled at 12 levels from 1:4,622,324 to 1:2,257. The imagery was collected to meet ASPRS Class 1 orthoimagery standards. Most areas were collected at a 1-ft ground sample distance (GSD), with some urban areas upgraded to 6-inch and 3-inch GSD.


VBMP Geospatial Program Manager Gerry Bernhardt has approved the imagery usage in OpenStreetMap as public domain data with citation "Virginia Geographic Information Network". A proof has been obtained and uploaded to the OpenStreetMap Wiki. VBMP Permission.png


VBMP Orthoimagery has been included in iD since 2018. If you wish to use this imagery out of iD, please follow the instruction at
